On March 5th, I will be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at the Brewer's Ball, an event that celebrates and recognizes Columbus' Finest young professionals. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raising money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF).
Each nominee has been given the task of reaching $2,500 in donations - however, I'm accepting the challenge of doubling that number. With your help, we can support vital CF research, medical treatments and educational programs.
Any amount, large or small, adds up. 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.
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!
