I will always remember the fear and despair I felt on Wednesday, August 20, 2008, the day I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of fifteen. Since then, my journey has been rocky at times, yet my faith, support from my family and friends, and recent medical advances, have helped me keep a positive outlook. I enjoy life and I am optimistic that I will have an exciting future. I am determined to fight. I am determined to live.
Currently, there is no cure for CF, but there are several drugs being developed for treating CF that are in the pipeline. Approximately 90 percent of your tax-deductible gift goes directly to support research for treatments and for a cure. Please consider helping me raise funds for this life-saving research and new treatments by making a donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Carolina's Chapter - for "Caroline's Crusaders." I am grateful for your support and generosity.
