I hadn't really heard of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) until April 2017 when my good friend and I were taking a walk with our week old babies when she received a call from the CF Foundation offering their support with the imminent diagnosis of CF for her brand new baby daughter. Her life has changed forever since that phone call. This disease can be invisible and sometimes that makes it hard for people to understand how hard it is to live with the disease. The hours of each day spent doing treatments and the medications and all the small and huge ways it affects the people suffering with CF can be hard to really understand until you're close to someone who has it. I'd like your support in funding research for a cure for this terrible disease!
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.

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!
