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've worked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital for 11 years and have been working in the Cystic Fibrosis Center for the past 2.5 years. I've worked with patients and families with various chronic illnesses during my career, and while each have impacted me in amazing ways, our families with CF have captured my heart! Patients with CF are resilient, strong, hopeful, caring, driven individuals who take on so many challenges related to their CF. There have been many advances in research and care, just in the 2.5 years I have been involved, and there are many more promising therapies on the horizon. I have been amazed by how quickly and efficiently CF research and care advances - and the CF Foundation is a tremendous partner in that growth!

Please help me support patients with CF and their families 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!

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!
