If you know me at all, you probably know that curing cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disease impacting more than 30,000 people in the US (including me!), is my drving passion. I've been living with CF for 40 years (and counting!), and in that time I have seen the life expectancy for people like me rise from the mid teens to over 40 years old thanks to incredible advances in science and clinical care. I've also seen our community grow from mostly pediatric patients and scared parents to a thriving mix of adults with CF, spirited children and young adults, and hopeful family members all looking forward to a bright and healthy future. And all of that progress is thanks to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and generous supporters like you.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the worldwide leader in the fight to "make CF stand for Cure Found" and improve the lives of people living with this still deadly disease. It's also a nationally recognized charity, well known for its efficiency, careful stewardship of every dollar raised, and commitment to its mission. Rest assured that your gift, no matter how big or how small, will make a real difference to people and families -- from funding the development of new drugs, to providing access tp high-quality and specialized care, to a robust portfolio of support and connection services, the CF Foundation is truly "adding tomorrows" and helping to ensure better todays for people like me every single day.
Please support my team in raising funds to continue this important work!
We are at a pivotal moment in the history of cystic fibrosis and your support matters. With your help, we can invest our resources in research right now, while raising funds for our continued success tomorrow, and ensure we have what it takes to reach the finish line. Together, we can make what was once an impossible dream a reality for all people impacted by CF and finally cure cystic fibrosis. No amount is too small and no gift (or share!) goes unappreciated. Please help me reach my fundraising goal!
