I’m absolutely honored to announce I’ve been nominated by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Minnesota as one of Twin Cities Finest.

Nearly 3 years ago to the day, two of my wonderful friends and clients welcomed their first born into the world. Before they left the hospital that summer day, their beautiful baby girl Bailey was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. In that moment, my clients knew they would outlive their daughter unless they found a cure. I remember thinking how unfair life can be sometimes. Why them? Why not my own three children? Over the past three years, I’ve stood by my clients side and given what Jenny and I are able to give.

Today, I’m overwhelmingly humbled to join the frontline of the fight. Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disorder or mutation that affects a patients digestive system reducing caloric and nutrient absorption/intake and normal respiratory function. A normal day for a CF patient consists of 20-30 pills a day, nebulizers, and oscillation vests…and that just for toddlers. By 2034, nine billion dollars can fund the cure. Cystic Fibrosis is at the forefront of genetic mapping and DNA reconstruction. Because it only affects 30,000 children and adults in the United States, it receives zero government funding…it’s not an illness of the masses. But because of private funding like this, it’s research is the first wave on the beachhead of solving genetic mutations. Cure CF, and other genetic diseases and illnesses will begin to fall.

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

Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical and education programs.

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. 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 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!
