On June 10th, 2022 I will be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at The 65 Roses Gala as an outstanding young professional in the Louisville community. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raise money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF).
The 65 Roses Gala will honor some of Louisville's best and brightest young professionals. The evening is a who’s who gathering of honorees who show exemplary leadership, are active in the community, and have excelled in their profession or business. These leaders are not only making a positive local impact, but we are committed to supporting the Foundation’s mission.
Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical and education programs.
Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now -- more than ever -- to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of Foundation-supported research and care, the median survival age of people with CF is about 40. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough. We continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit www.cff.org. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
