Hi there!  I'm Dr. Rorry Brenner.  I'm a Robotics Research Scientist at Neya Systems as well as the organizer and MC of Nerd Nite Pittsburgh.  I will soon be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event recognizing outstanding young professionals in Pittsburgh. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raise money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing 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. 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 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!

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!

You can also help fundraise by attending a future Nerd Nite event.  Nerd Nite is a non-profit which will be donating all revenue towards this goal.  Learn more about our events on our webpage: pittsburgh.nerdnite.com
