Hello Friends, Colleagues, Mentors, Students and Family,
I will be honored as one of "Tulsa's Finest" at a special event recognizing outstanding young professionals in Tulsa and hosted by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. 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 support me as an honoree and help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation, purchasing tickets to attend the event to watch as I am recognized with the other honorees or by donating a silent auction item in my name. Just click the Donate button on this page to make a donation that will be credited to my fundraising efforts. Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated and I appreciate your support so much!
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 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!
Thank you all for your support!
