Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. 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 the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's life-saving research. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit cff.org. Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of the Foundation's efforts, the median survival age of people with CF is about 40. This is remarkable progress, but it's simply not enough. We continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis. Please help me meet my fundraising goal by donating. Just click the Donate button on this page to make a donation that will be credited to my fundraising efforts. On October 15, 2021, I will be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event recognizing outstanding young professionals in Pittsburgh, so any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated! Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
