7 (!!!!!) years ago I met Tom at a fraternity mixer. He mentioned casually having something called cystic fibrosis - so I went home later that night and googled it.
Well fast forward to today - We are married with a home and two fur babiies. Not to mention my full time career at the CFF - so you could say that CF has become a pretty integral part of my life.
Tom is the most amazing person I know - he is kind, forever positive, accomplished, brave, and the strongest person I know - all while living with this awful disease.
You would never know by his attitude, but CF makes Tom's life so much more difficult than it needs to be.
We are so fortunate that Tom has been able to start the life-changing treatment, Trikafta, which the CFF made possible. This drug has opened up a whole new future for Tom and me but our work is not done. We will fight until every single person living with CF has a cure for cystic fibrosis and we need YOUR help to do that. Please consider donating so we can push forward in our pursuit to make CF stand for Cure Found.
Any amount you can give is so appreciated! Also 100% tax deductible!
There are several ways you can help!
1. Donate Your Time
- Walk with us on May 16th at Great Strides Atlanta. Great Strides is such an exciting event where you tangibly get the chance to see all the hope, excitement and passion in the CF community. You can register by clicking "Register to Walk" above.
- The quickest and easiest way to help is to help us share Tom's story! Share this link to your social media page to help us spread awareness
2. Donate Your $$
- We are getting closer to a cure for CF every day, but we won't be able to do it without the generosity of folks like you. Any dollar donated is 100% tax deductibe (not to mention 100% full of hope) and helps fund for CF Care, Community and ultimately the CURE.
3. Donate your Talent
- We love out-of-the-box fundraising here at the CFF. Have a knack for knitting? A passion for party planning? How about a love of lasagna? We can put your talent to use! Reach out to me with any ideas and we can disuss how to turn your talents into treasure.
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. I walk for them and hope you will support me in my efforts. Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
Real progress has been for those who have CF, but there is still no cure for this devastating disease and many lives are cut far too short. By walking today, I am helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me? Please consider making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today!
Please support me!
Help me reach my fundraising goal by donating to my Great Strides fundraising campaign. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting groundbreaking research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
