I am honored to have been nominated to partake in the Rochester's Finest program, a campaign that allows young professions to make a huge positive impact in the local community by supporting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raise money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF).

CF is a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that afflicts about 30,000 Americans and affects every aspect of their daily life. CF causes a thick buildup of mucus in the lungs, making it so difficult to breath that some say it is like breathing through a narrow straw. The mission of the Foundation is find a cure for CF.

Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation, and in turn bringing us one step closing to finding the cure.  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!

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!
