Welcome friends & family!

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).

As many people know, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the work they do is something I hold very closely to my heart. Since my very first event I volunteered at in 2016, having the opportunity to be honored at a Finest event has been a huge goal of mine. 

In November of 2015, the world lost an incredible young man. I am honored to have been so close to him in the few years that I knew him. He is someone I will remember forever, and work every day to try to make proud. Elias was one of the funniest, kindest, most supportive and patient people I have ever met. Throughout his battle with CF, he had the most infectious smile. He touched the lives of every person lucky enough to have met him. Through my campaign, I am taking this opportunity to give back to the CF community. Elias' mother, siblings, nieces and nephews still tell stories and post pictures and memories with him, and I will be thinking of them through every step in this process. They are an incredible family and I hope to make them proud with my efforts. 

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.

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!

Hello everyone! WOW!! With our official kickoff about a week away, I just wanted to take a moment and say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Our campaign hasn't even officially taken off yet and I'm already a bit over 50% to my goal! Your support towards my passion means the absolute world to me. Thank you for taking some time out of your day to not only help me with my campaign, but ultimately to help the thousands of people who are living with Cystic Fibrosis today!
