May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month

Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is making a huge difference in extending the quality of life for those with CF. However, we continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. That's why your help is needed now more than ever to ensure that a cure is found sooner - rather than later. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit www.cff.org.

If you would like to help cure cystic fibrosis and provide hope for a cure to those who battle this devastating disease, you may donate to the Great Strides campaign. Your donations are tax deductible. 90% of each dollar donated is used to fund cystic fibrosis research. HELP CURE CF! And spread the word that May is CF awareness month.

Did you know that 1 hour of research costs $12,000?

So far I have raised 30% of my goal for Great Strides Donations. I'd like to raise $5,000 or more! Please help me succeed

Thanks for your concise information. I would like to use it in a letter I'm sending to friends and businesses to raise money.
Please do! There are so many great things that need the additional research $. I wish you well with your fund raising efforts.

You are a shining light, my friend. Hugs to you and the family.
