Hello Friends and Family! Thank you for visiting my page.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has chosen me as one of Pittsburgh’s 50 Finest of 2013, which recognizes outstanding young professionals in the community. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raise money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF). It is truly an honor to be selected and I look forward to raising funds and awareness for this organization. Please help me meet my goal by making a donation.
Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now -- more than ever -- to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research.
When the Foundation began in 1955, most children with CF did not live to see their first day of elementary school. Today, the median predicted age of survival for a person with CF is in the mid-30s. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough. We continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit www.cff.org.
Any donation you can give will be greatly appreciated. Also, please forward my link and spread the word to your friends and family. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis.
Thank you for supporting me and the mission of the CF Foundation!
