I will soon be part of LA's Finest, an event by the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Foundation which recognizes young professionals in Los Angeles. I am truly humbled and honored to be a part of this event and to accept this recognition. As part of my nomination, I am committed to raise money and awareness to help the CF Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis.
CF is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. My friend, Kristen Knauf, lost her sister, Kelsi Brown, to CF in 2016. I am proud to fundraise and support the CF Foundation in Kelsi's memory and in support of all those who are affected by CF today.
If you are able to, I ask if you can please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. Your generous gift will be used to help support vital CF research, medical and education programs. Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated!
Thank you very much!
Additional information about cystic fibrosis:
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!***
