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). The little guy in the picture above is my nephew Sid. Sid was diagnosed with CF in February, 2020 right before the world turned upside down (especially for the immunocompromised). I need your help funding research that will lead to a cure for Sid and the thousands of other kids and adults like him that have to live with this terrible disease. ***$5,000 MATCH*** I have secured a generous offer for my campaign. If I reach my $5,000 goal, I will receive a $5,000 donation to match my efforts. This is an incredible chance to double the impact your donation makes. Help me reach $5,000! 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! 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!
