Hello everyone! Thank you so much to all that have donated to my fundraiser so far! I am so happy to have crossed the $1,000.00 mark. We have six days left, so let's keep it going. I so appreciate every single one of you. As you may have heard, my Passion Campaign Fundraiser, "Cabaret for a Cause," was unfortunately cancelled this past Friday due to the power going out at the venue. It was a very sad day for everyone involved as so many people put so much hard work, time, & effort into making this event possible in order to raise money for an important cause. But...the show must go on! We are planning on rescheduling "Cabaret for a Cause" to Friday, September 22nd. A venue is TBD. So be sure to be on the lookout for more information on event details and changes. It was a bummer that the event was abruptly cancelled due to circumstances out of our control, but we are still determined to put on a great show that we have prepared for you. Thank you so much for all of your support!
I've decided to get involved with Metro DC's Finest in honor of my two cousins, Rachel Kinney and Megan Kinney, who were both born with cystic fibrosis. Growing up as an only child, Rachel and Megan are honorary sisters to me. Their strength, resilience, and zest for life while battling a life-threatening disease has been a huge source of inspiration to me from a very young age. In spite of the odds and challenges CF has brought them, they have never let it define who they are. Watching them grow & thrive into smart, ambitious, talented, kind, & passionate has been nothing but extraordinary. I couldn't have asked for better cousins, friends, & honorary sisters.
Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. By supporting my fundraising efforts, you have an opportunity in your lifetime to be part of ending this disease. Please consider joining us and help make medical history.
Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. 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 over 50. Working alongside the CF community, the CF Foundation has fostered the development of more than a dozen CF treatments and helped add decades of life for people with CF. Yet, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies. Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis – a life free from the burden of this disease – and we will not leave anyone behind.

This past Friday, I attended the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Metro DC Chapter's 18th Annual Brewer's Ball. It was a kick-off event for all Honorees and their fundraising efforts for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I had such a blast meeting my fellow honorees & the CFF Metro DC Chapter leaders. It was an honor to be introduced by my incredible aunt Angie Kinney and have my parents in attendance. Stay tuned for a fundraising event hosted by myself in my effort to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis in honor of my two cousins, Rachel & Megan, who are living with CF.
