Thank you for supporting my fundraising campaign for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. As part of the WNY Rising Stars class of 2020, I have been chosen to raise CF awareness in the greater Buffalo community.
Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. Now more than ever, CF patients are living in a state of constant fear. Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, people with underlying health conditions are at greater risk of developing serious illness if infected by COVID-19. CF fighters have been forced to adhere to extreme social distancing guidelines and other infection control measures to protect their health and maintain their well-being.
As our battle with the novel coronavirus rages on, so too does our fight against cystic fibrosis. The CF Foundation continues to lead the charge in pursuing the right remedy to end this disease once and for all. Thanks to its innovative research and drug development, the Foundation has made incredible progress in changing thousands of lives for the better. But there's still significant work to be done.
We can't do it alone - we need your help. No matter the size of the donation, every dollar counts in the fight against cystic fibrosis. Your support is crucial as we look to discover a cure for this chronic disease.
On behalf of the Rising Stars class of 2020 and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, I thank you for your generosity in support of my fundraising efforts.
