Okay, Cough it Up!

And give a donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!

I apologize for the horrible pun. It's truly tasteless, but where would we be without a sense of humor?

Last year, with your help, we raised over $18,000 for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! This year I've promised Froggy, we will raise $25,000 in her name. Raising money for a cure is the only thing I can do as a mother to ensure our sweet girl will live a healthier, happier and longer life.

The average life-expectancy for someone with CF is only 37 years. And only 60% of people with CF reach adulthood. That WILL NOT be the case for Froggy. But we need your help to raise money for better treatments and that elusive, but possible cure!

Click HERE to donate.

My wonderful friend, Mieke, has already raised over $1,000. And last year, she raised $8,000! Join her, and post this website on your blog, email all of your friends and ask them to help save a little Froggy!

Tell everyone you know that a little girl is counting on YOU to find her cure! I read every article published about CF, every drug in the FDA pipeline, every article about new antiobiotics, treatments, inhalers, and we are so close to a cure. This disease is not what it was 25 years ago, ten, or even five years ago. Kids today born with CF (I believe) will be the first to live a "normal" life. But pharmaceutical companies need a monetary incentive to do the important research that will get us there. And that is why we are literally counting on you to save those 30,000 people in the US with CF.

Please donate, any amount. Every dollar is a dollar that brings us closer to a cure!

If you would like to walk in the Great Strides 10K, and help raise money for CF, click here. And click on "Join My Walk Team".

Thank you for your help!
