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).

I am passionate about finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis because my best friend, Claire Booth, lost her 24-year battle in June of 2020. As her sister, Kendall said, "To me, Claire was infinite." Even through the pain, suffering, and countless hospital visits...she never let Cystic Fibrosis define her or stop her from living the life she wanted. She was the life of every party and made everyone feel like the most special person in the room. Everyone who was blessed to know Claire tries to live a little more like her each day because as Kendall said again, "Claire is infinite. And she always will be." In honor of Claire, I won't stop fundraising until we find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. FUCF!

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 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!
