I am so excited and honored to have been chosen as a member of this year’s class. After finding out that some of my friends' family members and friends have died from this horrible disease, I am committed to making an impact for the individuals that are going through this. I am, looking to raise $15,000 for the cause and was wondering if I could count on you to help me reach this goal! One thing that I have learned is many hands make light work! If you can’t give anything, I understand, but if you could share this link with others to spread the news of this campaign, that would help tremendously.
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!
