Hi everyone! I'm excited that I've been chosen as one of Pittsburgh's 50 Finest. It's an honor that recognizes outstanding young professionals in my community. To make it even more exciting, and rewarding, I've taken on the task of raising money to help the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in its mission of controlling and curing the disease. That's where I hope you'll be able to come in, and help me reach my goal. CF is a devastating disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. You may or may not know anyone with the disease, but more than 10 million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. 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. Your donation will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital research, medical, and education programs. To make a donation, just click the Donate button on this page. Any amount is not only greatly appreciated, but it's also tax deductible! If you'd like to learn more about CF and the CF foundation, visit www.ff.org. Many local companies will also match your donation dollar-for-dollar. You can find out if yours does on the following website http://www.matchinggifts.com/cff/. There will be a gala for all honorees coming up on August, 25. You can buy tickets, which are also tax deductible, or you can just donate money to the cause.
Thanks for taking your time to read this.
