I am humbled and honored to be selected as an honoree for Nashville's Top 30 Under 30! Each year the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, through this elite 16-week recognition program and philanthropic competition, showcases the Nashville community's top young professionals for their business, civic, and philanthropic achievements. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raise money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF).
Please help me and my campaign team crush my fundraising goal by making a donation on this page. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, patient services and education programs. It will also help me go above and beyond for the philanthropic competition part of the program. Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated!

WHAT IS CYSTIC FIBROSIS?
Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptom-less 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 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!
