Why I am fundraising for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation...

Ramsey Cohen

I will soon be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as one of the rising star young professionals in Knoxville. This particularly exciting as helping the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF) is extremely important to my wife Lee and I.

We have been personally impacted by Cystic Fibrosis and know first hand the impact this genetic disease can have on individuals and their families. Just over 5 years ago we lost Lee's sister Amy, who had Cystic Fibrosis after her complications arising from her second double lung transplant.

We are asking your support to help us meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support this worthy cause.

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. Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school, today the median survival age is 40.
