This year's nominees will be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event recognizing outstanding young professionals in the Charlotte community. As part of my work on the committee, I am committed to continuing to raise funds to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF).

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. Together we can end families, like mine, who have had to say goodbye to loved ones as a result of cystic fibrosis. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
