Roughly 4 years ago, I was introduced to Cystic Fibrosis when my friend Jamie's daughter, Desi, was born and diagnosed with CF shortly after. The more I learned about the disease and the potential impact it could have on her life the more I felt compelled to do whatever I could to help. Two years later, I became a mom myself and my desire to make sure Desi has all the same opportunities as other children intensified.

This year I have been nominated by my peers in the Atlanta community as a potential member of the Peachtree Society which honors promising young professionals. 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. There are many ways you can donate:

1. You can donate ANY amount $1-?. Every single dollar counts!
2. You can purchase tickets to Battle for a Cure on November 14th, 2019. Battle for a Cure we invite guests to enjoy local brews, handcrafted cocktails and tastings from the hottest restaurants in Atlanta. Tickets can be purchased on this page and all monies go towards my goal.
3. You can become a sponsor of the event. You will receive recognition in digital and print materials, verbal recognition during Battle of the Cure, social media shoutouts and more! Feel free to contact me for more info!
4. You can donate baskets/items/experiences to be auctioned off at Battle for a Cure.


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!
