Dear friends and family,
Thank you for visiting my donation page - I am grateful you took a few minutes to learn about the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) and my dedication to raising money for life-saving research! I will soon be honored by CFF at a special event recognizing outstanding young professionals in the community. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raise money to help CFF realize its mission of controlling and curing Cystic Fibrosis (CF).
Cystic Fibrosis is a cause that is very near and dear to my heart, and has been since I can remember. My younger sister, Lauren, was diagnosed with CF at birth. Our family has been through so much and continues to due to the debilitating disease. After years of frequent trips to the hospital and battles with illness, Lauren received a double lung transplant five years ago this August, and I am so thrilled to say that she is doing better than ever! However, she is one of the lucky ones. There are many people who have not been so fortunate. I am honored to have the opportunity to raise money for those people who are still living with this disease. We are so close to a cure and donations, such as yours, will help--no matter the amount! I can tell you first-hand that the money you so graciously donate will be going to help patients and their families in so many ways. It will not only go toward improving current available treatments; moreover, it will go toward researching cures for all strains of CF, as well as allowing families the ability to receive treatment once that cure is available to them.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my passion to end CF. Seeing my sister be able to live out her dreams, including getting married this May, has been life-changing not just for me, but for our family and friends as well! This could not have happened without the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Will you join me to raise enough money to never see a child or adult suffer from CF in the future? Let's turn CF into Cure Found!
About Cystic Fibrosis (CF)
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. When the Foundation began in 1955, most children with CF did not live to see their first day of elementary school. Today, the median predicted age of survival for a person with CF is in the mid-30s. 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 www.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!
