Help Me Reach My Goal!

I’m honored to have been nominated as one of Spokane’s Finest Young Professionals, a campaign hosted by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Spokane Chapter. My friend, Geneva nominated me and is a nominee herself. In accepting the nomination, I have committed myself to raising $2,500 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation by November 18th, 2011.
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 http://www.cff.org.
