Last year, we exceeded our goal by raising over $15,000! And this year, we are aiming to exceed last year’s amount raised with your help!
We fight with Paws and Claws staff team and owner Emily Bennett, for her two-year-old daughter Blakely, diagnosed with CF at birth. Thankfully Blakely is currently in good health, but we count our blessings with caution as CF is a progressive disease. There are many daily extra treatments & regimens, countless pills, and even hospitalizations.
Research indicates that starting treatment with modulators at a young age could help slow or even prevent the irreversible progression of cystic fibrosis, which is why Orkambi’s recent approval to start at just two years of age is great news for Blakely as well as other children.
The funds raised make it possible for these new medicines such as Orkambi to develop in effort to help exceed life expectancy for people with Cystic Fibrosis, and ultimately find a cure.
Supporters like you are the reason our shelters and humane societies are able to provide an increasing number of pets micro-chipped, spayed/ neutered, vaccinated, and provided veterinary care prior to adoption. In turn, more pets from these shelters can get adopted at an affordable low cost which in turn, makes room for others. Therefore, not only are you giving more animals a second chance, but the cost of your adoption goes directly towards helping the shelters in supplying care for the animals they take in!
In return for your generous support, we’ll work with you to identify the best ways to introduce your company to our auction attendees and spotlight your amazing partnership. Furthermore, your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical & education programs, and is 100-percent tax deductible!
If your company would like to make a donation, simply fill the “Auction Donation Form” attached and please contact us using the information provided below. We’re excited for this potential partnership!
