Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you for visiting my page and supporting Abbie's A-Team and Cystic Fibrosis Research. I am excited that so many of our friends and family continue to support us each year. This year I am celebrating turning 43! Most people don't look forward to adding wrinkles and gray hair to our aging appearance, but those of us with CF who have been told our average life expectancy is 37 get pretty fired up about crushing that life expectancy. In 1977, my parents were told I wouldn't survive past elementary school. I hope you will celebrate with my family and me (virtually) at the 2020 Great Strides on Friday, June 5th. This is certainly an unprecedented year and we are so grateful for any amount you are compelled or able to give. Without you, I wouldn't be here to celebrate another birthday. We are on the cusp of so many exciting strides in CF research. The approval of Trikafta in 2019 was the most significant milestone to date. But the mission of the CF Foundation has always been to have a treatment AND cure for ALL. We won't stop until its done!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
