Hi guys! I am so excited to let you all know about the events I am planning!! For now, they are in the works but just stay tuned and ready to have a great time!
My name is Kathryn, and I’m a 23 year old double-lung-and-liver transplant patient and a Personal Fitness Trainer at National Fitness Center.
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).
Unlike other Rising Stars, I was born with Cystic Fibrosis. Living with the disease from the very young age of three months old has molded me into the person I am now. Through life’s ups and downs I have learned, experienced, and become a much stronger person than the one I would be without CF as my daily routine. I am also a double-lung and liver transplant survivor since June 29th, 2018. Life since transplant has been nothing but amazing, and now that I am capable I want to raise money for the CFF and bring awareness about this life threatening disease.
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!
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!
