My CF Climb Story

Full disclosure!  I was asked if I wanted to "climb stairs" with someone and honestly, I thought it was some sort of tribute to first responders.  I said "sure, I will join you and do this".  NEVER ONCE DID I REALIZE IT WAS FOR A CAUSE!!    I was going to climb 900+ stairs "for the heck of it"...and now it became a CAUSE.  A PURPOSE.

In saying all of that, I only found out about this CAUSE/PURPOSE a few days ago, and now is the first time I have had to set my page up.  Folks - this event is this Saturday.  And yes, I am supposed to raise funds.

If a few of you could find it in your hearts to donate something to the CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION, I would be grateful and I know the Foundation would be.  If you can't, please just think of me as I climb these 900+ stairs!

The cause, the purpose is serious guys and gals.  Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who face the sobering prospect of a shortened lifespan. I climb for them.

Working alongside the CF community, the CF Foundation has fostered the development of more than a dozen CF treatments and helped add decades of life for people with CF. Yet, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies. The vision of the Foundation is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis – a life free from the burden of this disease – and we will not leave anyone behind.

Please support me!
By supporting my fundraising goal, you have an opportunity in your lifetime to be part of ending this disease. Please consider joining us and help make medical history.
