Welcome to my fundraising campaign for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! I am so excited to have you here.

My first day of college brought the best people into my life, including my friend Alli. To know her is to love her, and getting to know Alli's story with cystic fibrosis only made me love her even more.

Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. Because of the work this Foundation-supported research and care has made in the past 60 years, the median survival age of people living with CF has drastically increased. This means I get to attend many college reunions with Alli by my side!

Alli received Trikafta in 2018, which has saved thousands of lives in recent years. But understanding the complexities of this disease and the strength of CF survivors has inspired me to do more for this community. Many people with CF do not benefit from these existing therapies… YET! 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.

Together we can make a difference. I am ready to see a cure for cystic fibrosis in mine - and Alli's- lifetime.
