Hello my lovely followers,
On June 10, 2015 I will be participating in a walk to help cure Cystic Fibrosis. My goal is to raise $1,000 and I’m asking for your help.
Help me reach my fundraising goal by donating any amount ($5, $10, $20, $25). Your gift will help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis by supporting life-saving research and medical progress. Your gift is 100-percent tax deductible.
Here’s a link to donate directly to my fundraising page:
Here’s a bit about cystic fibrosis:
“Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. An estimated 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide) have CF.
In people with CF, a defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that”
- Clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections
- Obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down food and absorb vital nutrients.
In the 1950s, few children with CF lived to attend elementary school. Since the, tremendous progress in understanding and treating CF has led to dramatic improvements in the length and quality of life for those with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond.”
Thank you in advance for your help.
