I will soon be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event recognizing outstanding young professionals in my 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).
Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical and education programs. This charity is dear to my heart as I have a good friend whose 4-year old little girl suffers from the debilitating disease.  This little girl is such a warrior!! No matter how horrible she feels or what current situation she is faced with she never stops being the fun, loving, spunky and feisty 4 year old that she is because she has had to fight for her life since the day she was born.  As long as I have known this family, this little girl, Mary Chandler, has spent days and even weeks on end in the hospital.  Even though she is crippled at times by this disease she remains strong, positive and she just keeps on fighting.  I have also been witness to the countless hours of worry, stress and anguish that this disease causes Mary Chandler's family.  Her mother has to stay strong and cry behind closed doors so her little girl will see how important it is to stay strong and fight.  This family like countless others deserve all the help that we can give to help find a cure for this horrific disease that plagues so many.  By making a donation, you will be contributing directly to the source the CF foundation and its research.  UAB is the 1st Care Center as well as the leading research hospital.  We are moving towards finding a cure every day and with your help we could possible get there. Every Penny counts and I am forever thankful and grateful to you and your willingness to give.
