Hi Family and Friends!
 
As you might have seen on social media - I've been nominated as a STANDOUT for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation chapter here in Charlotte this year!
 
Cystic Fibrosis or CF is an ultimately fatal disease that causes the lungs to develop a thick lining of mucus in those affected. This causes frequent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. You can learn more about it here: About Cystic Fibrosis
 
Generally, the disease is identified at birth and as there is no cure at this time, the life expectancy of someone with CF is under 50 years.  During this time, the affected person must undergo constant breathing treatments, take medicines to slow the immune response and as they age - are placed on dialysis.
 
As a STANDOUT, I've been tasked to raise $25,000 towards a cure for CF for Cameron Davis who is a local 3 year old who was diagnosed with CF shortly after he was born.  You can learn more about Cameron's journey on his Facebook page: Cameron's Crew

I had the opportunity to meet Cameron a few weeks ago and he's the best kid - and really does all he can to keep CF from slowing him down! 

He has to undergo about two hours of breathing treatments each day, takes multiple medications daily and must eat a very bland diet to keep lung infections as minimal as possible.







How can you help?
 
I would like to ask you to consider donating towards a cure for Cameron and the 100,000 people in the world who suffer with CF.
 
There are three ways to help:

1.)   Make a 100% tax-deductible general donation online using this webpage.

​2.)   Join me at the STANDOUT event at the Mint Museum Uptown at 6:00PM on Thursday, October 27. Tickets are $175 and include dinner, beer/wine, and entertainment. Tickets can be purchased here on my site.


3.)  Share my efforts with your network through e-mail, social media, or word of mouth. Raising awareness about cystic fibrosis is an important part of my work for STANDOUT. 

Your support is greatly appreciated. Thank you for being a vital part of this endeavor.
 
- Patrick
