Friends and Family,
I can't believe it's that time of year again where I get to share my connection to cystic fibrosis (CF) and passion for helping the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. First, I would like to thank you all for your continued support. Because of your donations, the Foundation is able to continue fighting to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.
In 6th grade a good friend of mine, Allison Villalobos, told me she had cystic fibrosis. CF is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. Allison is one of the approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis; taking dozens of pills daily, undergoing hours of therapy, doctors and hospital visits. Although advancements have been made, there still is no cure for this disease. Over the past 18 years, my goal has been to help fight for a cure for this disease.
I love volunteering at the North Texas CFF chapter's events, in fact, that is how I met Ryan, my husband. Ryan also suffers from CF and often speaks at events to share how the research that the Foundation does supports the drugs and medications that become available to himself and other CF patients.
I hope that by fundraising through this site, I can help Allison, Ryan, and the lives of others living with CF. Please support me by making a donation to my Great Strides fundraising campaign today! Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families. I would like to ask you to help by making a donation or joining our team. Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Please remember that no donation is too small. Making a donation is easy and secure. Just click the link below that says, "Click here to visit my personal page" to make a donation that will support my team. Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated. Your support will help fuel life-saving CF programs.
