STANDOUT Class of 2024: Making a Difference in the Fight Against Cystic Fibrosis
I'm excited to share that I've been selected as a member of the STANDOUT Class of 2024! This recognition, awarded by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, celebrates young professionals in Charlotte who are making significant contributions to the local community. As part of this group, I am honored to help combat cystic fibrosis (CF) and advocate for those affected by this relentless genetic disorder. Together, let's raise funds and awareness to offer hope and a brighter future to all those affected by CF.

Understanding CF
CF is a relentless genetic disorder that thickens mucus to build up in the lungs and pancreas, leading to debilitating complications such as respiratory failure and extensive lung damage. By rallying support and resources, we can accelerate vital research, improve treatments, and ultimately find a cure for this disorder.

Why CF Advocacy Matters: Janson’s Story
Janson, shown in pictures below, is a resilient member of the Charlotte community and faces the daily challenges of CF with unwavering determination. Despite the rigorous treatment regimen and countless pills, he remains committed to maintaining his health. In his leisure time, Janson's adventurous spirit shines through as he immerses himself in sports, video games, and outdoor explorations, such as bug collecting and riding in fast cars. And when it's time to indulge, Janson's favorite foods include burgers, fries, and sweet treats.

How You Can Make a Difference for Janson and the CF Community
Your contributions play a direct role in funding the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's innovative research and help to build a path to a cure for the disorder. You can make a difference in three significant ways:
  1. Make a Donation: Your tax-deductible contributions can be made securely online via this webpage. This is accessed through the “Donate” tab on my webpage.
  2. Be a part of the STANDOUT Awards Ceremony: Attend the event on November 7th at the Ruth, located in Charlotte, for an evening of dinner, drinks, and entertainment. You can choose to buy tickets to the dinner, sponsor the event, or purchase an acknowledgement in their program. All of these options are accessed through the “Buy Tickets” tab on my webpage.
  3. Spread the Word: Help amplify our cause by sharing my efforts with your network through email, social media, or personal referrals.

Gratitude and Call to Action
Every donation and act of assistance is greatly appreciated, driving us closer to our shared goal. Your support is the cornerstone of our efforts, and we are deeply grateful for your commitment to making a difference in the lives of those affected by CF!

Impact of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Globally recognized, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has spearheaded groundbreaking advancements in CF treatment, significantly improving the quality of life for individuals affected by the disorder. Over the past decades, the Foundation's relentless efforts have resulted in the development of numerous therapies, effectively doubling the life expectancy of those born with CF in the last 30 years.

The Ongoing Struggle and the Foundation's Vision
Despite remarkable progress, many CF patients still face challenges accessing effective treatments due to advanced disorder stages or unresponsive genetic mutations. The Foundation's ultimate vision is a world where every individual with CF can lead a life free from its burdens, driven by an unwavering commitment in pursuit of a cure.
