Thank you for considering a donation to the CF Foundation! I was introduced to the CF Foundation by a good friend who lives with CF, Ella Balasa. She is one of the strongest, most positive, and determined people I know, and has inspired me and many others, to live life to the fullest. In the time we've been friends, Ella has endured many types of treatments, hospital stays, and even spent many months at Duke preparing for a lung transplant. With the help of fundraising efforts of the CF Foundation, she was able to avoid a double lung transplant by starting a revolutionary drug that has helped her tremendously. I look forward to doing a small part to facilitate giving to this life changing organization.
I will soon be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event recognizing outstanding young professionals in my community. 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 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 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!
