I am honored to be a part of this life-changing fundraiser, as it is for a cause that is very close to my heart.

Tommy Schaffer is the reason that reaching my goal is so important to me. Tommy is a 12 year old boy who has been living with Cystic Fibrosis since the day he was born. I was fortunate enough to meet Tommy 4 years ago, when his older sister Jayna started dating my younger brother Danny. Before meeting Tommy and his family, I was unaware of the impact that this disease has on the individuals and the families suffering. Tommy has endured a liver transplant, battled (and beat!) Lymphoma, and conquered various other bumps in the road. Regardless, he spends his days smiling and playing flag football and Fortnite with friends, excelling at home-school, and showing us what a real-life hero truly is. Tommy's family are the most joyous, kindhearted and positive people I know. Watching them work together to tackle such a difficult disease has been so inspirational.

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!

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).

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. You will be helping to create tomorrows for kids like Tommy, today.

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!
