Amber Newman

Amber is twenty-seven years old and living with Cystic Fibrosis. She received a life saving double-lung transplant on March 13, 2007 and four months later, a kidney transplant from her mother. Amber also lives with cystic fibrosis related diabetes, controlled with an insulin pump, a feeding tube (MIC-KEY G-tube) for necessary daily nutrients and wears cochlear implants due to hearing loss and deafness. She would like to thank her donor family for making it possible to be chosen as one of 2019's Cincinnati's Finest Young Professionals.

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!

Join me as we all make a difference one beautiful soul at a time.

What is Cystic Fibrosis?

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!
