THE STORY:

This May, for the 5th year, I'll be participating in the Pittsburgh Marathon as part of a relay team to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) - 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 6 months old.

In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond - nearly half of the CF population is over the age of 18. And me? I'm going to be 30 this year and I've never felt better, thanks in large part to new treatments made possible through the support of the CF Foundation.

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, 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."
