I am committed to helping find a cure for cystic fibrosis and am raising funds to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on behalf of my cousin Will.
CF is a life-shortening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe. In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs.
Thanks to our community and generous supporters, the CF Foundation continues to make unparalleled progress in understanding and treating CF and in making a significant difference in the day-to-day lives of people living with this disease.
Will is 24 years old, recently graduated from UVM, and is pursuing his master's degree. He has a deep appreciation for animals, reggae music, and traveling. Contributions to my personal fundraising page go to the Annual Fund which provides important, unrestricted resources that help develop new treatments and pursue every opportunity for promising research that can lead to a cure.
