Thank you so much for coming to my page and helping me support a cause that is near and dear to my heart. I have two very special people in my heart and life who have battled and are still battling the fight against Cystic Fibrosis.
16 years ago my older sister lost her best friend (older sister to myself) to CF. Stacy was an inspiring young woman with a beautiful heart and such a joy for life. She could light up any room and made a lasting impact on all that were lucky to know her.
My friend Grant, is simply one of the best. Just like Stacy he makes a lasting impact on all that know him. I have been lucky to call Grant one of my dear friends for around 15 years. He always gives me a new perspective on life and reminds me just how valuable every day on earth is. I look forward to spending every summer with him on the Jacks Fork River in Eminence, Mo.
Supporting this cause gives me hope for longer life expectancy and many more summers spent on the Jacks Fork with my dear friend.
I will soon be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event recognizing Nashville's young professionals.
In accepting this distinction, I have committed to honor Stacy and Grant by raising money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF).
Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical and education programs.

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. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
