I will soon be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event recognizing young professionals in my community. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raising $24,000 to help the Foundation realize its mission of curing cystic fibrosis (CF).

Cystic Fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that has been a part of my life since the day I was born. When I was diagnosed, my parents were told that I would not live to be an adult. Because of generous people like you and the research funded by the CF Foundation, I am incredibly grateful to be alive today, 14 years past my life expectancy. But life with this disease has been very challenging and filled with hospitalizations, surgeries, doctors appointments and rounds of IV antibiotics.

Every day, I spend 3 hours taking breathing treatments and doing airway clearance. I also take over 40 pills per day along with insulin injections to manage my CF-related diabetes. But CF has taken more from me than my ability to breathe and any sense of normalcy in my life. It has also taken many of my dear friends.

Leslie, Liam, Katelyn, Monique, Sarah, Lauren, Claire, Stephen, Jena, Diana and Emily (pictured above).

These are just some of the beautiful souls that have lost their courageous battle to CF. I fight every day in their memory and my greatest hope is that no one will ever have to suffer the loss of a friend or family member to this disease again.

With your support, we can make this dream a reality.

Please help me take one step closer to a cure by making a donation. Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated!

With Love & Gratitude,
Stacy
