Rob Schmidt

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.

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!

In addition to making a donation, please consider purchasing a ticket to the outstanding Brewers Ball event scheduled for Thursday June 13. Ticket purchases contribute to my fundraising, so please be sure to click the 'Fundraiser' button at the top of the order form and type 'Rob Schmidt' in the box to ensure that your ticket purchase helps support my fundraising efforts. Call or email me if you have any questions.

Most of all, please understand how very large an impact your contribution makes. While we all donate to many causes, few can show the type of immediate life-improving and life-extending progress that we see with CF research. In 2017 alone, life expectancy for someone with CF jumped from 41 to 47!

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 47. 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!
