I am honored to be selected as a member of Orlando's Rising Stars, class of 2020! Over the next two months, my goal is to raise awareness and 'add tomorrows' to the lives of individuals who are battling cystic fibrosis ("CF"). When my mom was initially diagnosed in 1972, my grandparents were told that she would not make it passed the age of 7. Today, thanks in large to the efforts of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (the "Foundation"), the average life expectancy of an individual with CF is in the 40's! With help from the community, we can assist the Foundation in developing medication, like Trikafta, which will continue to add tomorrows to those with CF.
As part of the Rising Stars, I have committed to raise $2,500.00 to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing CF. Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation or purchasing a ticket to the Orlando's Rising Stars Celebration. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical and education programs.
Making a donation is easy and secure! Just click the Donate button on this page to make a donation that will be credited to my fundraising efforts. Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated!
Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. 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. To learn more about CF and the Foundation, visit 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!
