Alexis Bostetter

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).

The fight against CF is a cause very near and dear to my heart. I have served as the clinical social worker for the adult CF care center at VCU Health since December 2017. In my time at VCUHS, I have had the honor of working with over 100 adults with CF and CFTR related disease. This has given me a firsthand look into how CF impacts these individuals’ everyday life. The tenacity and hope I see in each of my CF patients is what inspires me to reach my fundraising goal. Each dollar you donate through this fundraising effort brings my patients one step closer to advanced new treatments, and even possibly a cure for CF!

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.

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!

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!
