Friends, Family, and Kind Strangers,

If you've stumbled upon this page you probably know that this fall I will be joining forces with the Peachtree Society to raise awareness and funding for cystic fibrosis research. Three years ago, I had a precious kiddo in my class named Ian. We bonded over our shared love of Harry Potter and Clemson football (I think I've successfully brainwashed him into becoming a full-fledged Clemson fan, but we'll have to wait until he's 18 to be sure...), and he quickly stole a place in my heart. Ian was the first person with CF that I had ever met, and working with him and his family that year was an absolute joy. They very graciously educated me about the ins and outs of CF, and together we worked to give Ian the best first grade year we possibly could. He's doing great and still gives me a big hug every time I pass him in the hallway at school. I am honored to represent Ian as I join the CFF family. I hope you will all consider contributing to finding a cure for Ian and all those affected by cystic fibrosis. #everythingispossible

Love,
Gentry

More details:

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 and/or buying tickets to attend Battle for a Cure on November 14. 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 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!
