Hello! Thanks for stopping by my page. Cystic Fibrosis was not something on my radar until I was nominated this year by a former teacher who has a son who battles the disease every day. Since being nominated, I've learned a lot about what CF entails and heard several stories from individuals and families who have and do experience it first hand. The research over the past several decades has made significant improvements to the lives of those living with CF through life-changing medication and treatments. Fundraisers like these raise the money necessary to achieve such milestones.

I hope that if you, like me, do not have a direct tie to CF, you will be inspired by personal stories to donate in some way to this effort and have a small impact on families you may never meet. It's an honor to be nominated for this cause and I hope you'll consider joining me in my efforts to raise money to directly improve the quality of life for people living with CF and one day find a cure!

I am being honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event recognizing outstanding professionals in my community. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raise money to help the Foundation realize its mission of curing cystic fibrosis (CF) and providing all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives.

Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. By supporting my fundraising efforts, you have an opportunity in your lifetime to be part of ending this disease. Please consider joining us and help make medical history.

Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. 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 over 50. Working alongside the CF community, the CF Foundation has fostered the development of more than a dozen CF treatments and helped add decades of life for people with CF. Yet, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies. Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis – a life free from the burden of this disease – and we will not leave anyone behind.
