Let me lay it down right here.
On February 21 I will be turning 31. All I want for my birthday is to raise $10,000...it is that simple. No really, it is. My friends and I did some math (well my friends did) and we discovered that if I can get 100 people to commit to getting 10 people to donate $10, we will get hit that $10,000 mark. We are not asking for $1 or $100 (though feel free to donate what you want), we are asking for $10! That is approximately 1/10 of the new running shoes I want for my Birthday..oh wait, no I only want to raise $10,000 for my birthday!
This sure is a lot of 10's! Like Kroger's 10 for 10...my favorite.
**The 1st 50 $10 donors will recieve a FREE ROCK CF sticker**
The person who gets us to that $10,000 mark will get a special care package with a few of my "Favorite Things..." Just like Oprah!
The money we raise will go help fund research that the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is spearheading. One of the most exciting drugs ever was approved by the FDA on January 31 of 2012. Kalydeco or more commonly known as "Blue Lightning" is a little blue pill I started on 3 years ago in clinical trials. This drug has completely changed my life and I am now planning on a long future ahead where I can see my nieces grow up and fulfill their dreams, just like I have. Blue Lightning only works for 4% of the 30,000 with CF at this point. So, we need to raise money to fund more research and drugs that will make sure that EVERYONE living with cystic fibrosis will have a pill that will control CF and give them a new lease on life!
