My nephew, Owen, is one of 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. Owen was diagnosed with CF at 10 days old. Since then, he has been under the expert care of his team at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and remains a very active, imaginative, and creative boy.
I have made a commitment to support the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Great Strides Walk (May 2017). Great Strides is the Foundation’s largest fundraiser nationwide. Great Strides continues to gain momentum, as does research efforts and the progress The Foundation has made in the search for a cure. The CF Foundation has raised and invested hundreds of millions of dollars to support the development of new CF drugs and therapies. But the lives of people with this disease are still cut far too short. We need your continued support to fulfill our mission of finding a cure and improving the quality of life of those with the disease.
I would love to have your support as a sponsor this year for this important (and personal) cause. Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated. Donations can be easily made through the link below or, as an alternative, cash or checks can be sent to me and made payable directly to “Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.”
