Hi everyone! I am running the LA Marathon for the second time this year. This year I will be running to raise money for research on cystic fibrosis (CF). CF is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. I really knew nothing about CF until my cousin, Greg, was diagnosed as a baby. This news was very difficult for our family to take in, but we remain hopeful as advances in research and new treatment options are being made daily. I hope you'll join me in donating to support this great cause!
