THE STORY:

Run for your life! That's what I'll be doing this May as I take on the challenge of participating in the Pittsburgh Marathon as part of a relay team to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). As many of you know, I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) when I was 6 months old, and have been living and fighting the disease every day of my life. CF is is a genetic, life-shortening disease that affects 30,000 adults and children in the United States and 70,000 worldwide, causing irreversible damage to the lungs and digestive system.

When I was born, the average life expectancy for those with cf was about 25 years. I've been fortunate enough to lead a relatively healthy 26 years, which is why this year I'm able to run alongside friends and family for this cause.

Through fundraisers like the marathon, the CF Foundation funds and supports vital cf research, care, and education programs. CFF is considered one of the most efficient organizations of its kind, and nearly ever penny of each dollar donated goes toward one goal: finding a cure.

The great news is that we've never been closer to that goal. I believe the disease will be cured in my lifetime, but we're not there yet. Your help is needed now, more than ever.

Donating is fast and easy- just click the button on the right hand side of this page and follow the instructions. ANY amount is significant and greatly appreciated.

As supporters of the CF Foundation you all are the reason I'm here today; you're the reason I will live beyond the age the doctors told my parents I would at birth, the reason I have the daily drug treatments I do that have kept me this healthy for this long, and the reason I'm able to run for a cure in May with my sister, my family, and my friends.

Together we can make CF stand for "Cure Found."
