More Info

I was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) at the age of 16. Even 13 years later I'm still a long way from fully dealing with what it means to have this disease and the implications it has on my future.

My life looks like many other 29 year olds’. I have a wonderful husband, fabulous family and friends, and a job that I love. But unlike most people my age, I have to do time-consuming daily treatments, spend countless hours at the hospital, and worry about what my future looks like.

When I was born in 1984, the life expectancy of someone with CF was just 25 - this September I'll turn 30! And I can't wait to celebrate the many things this wonderful life has allowed me to do.

But I'm not finished yet. 30 years isn't enough.

That's why my 30th birthday wish is for 30 more.

For 30 more years of…books to devour…dates with my husband…successes in my career…vacations to places near and far…holidays with my family…meals to enjoy…drinks with my girlfriends…

For more life. Things big and small. For ALL people with CF.

I truly believe that with help from people like you, we can find a cure so that everyone with cystic fibrosis can live a long and full life.

There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, husbands, wives, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe.

Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now - more than ever - to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for joining me in this fight!

(If you have questions or want to learn more about living with CF, please visit my blog.)
