I am doing stand-up comedy for the first time and I need your support!

I am participating in an upcoming event, LOL4CFF, where I’ll be part of a comedy competition among other first-time stand-up comedians. I’m doing a five-minute set for the show, all for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In support of my participation in the event, I’m raising money for this great cause.

There are three ways to support me:

1. Make a donation that will be credited to my fundraising efforts. Any amount you can donate will make a difference and be greatly appreciated!

2. Purchase a ticket for LOL4CFF and see this all go down! The event is on August 9, 2024 at The Big Chill in Charlotte. Tickets include a seated dinner, hosted beer & wine, and if you’re there, you can vote for me to win!

3. If you know others that would be willing and interested in joining our efforts please send them my link and invite your friends to support our effort!

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that causes a thick buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria, which can lead to infections, extensive lung damage and respiratory failure.

Why did I choose to do this? My daughter. Auburn was born with cystic fibrosis, we were told she would die before she was a teenager. We spent many holidays and summers in the hospital, hooked up to IV antibiotics. She had numerous surgeries before the age of 15, including 2 lung lobectomies, multiple sinus surgeries, and most of her large intestine removed. 

Unfortunately, based on her genotype, Auburn didn't qualify for any new miracle drugs. In 2016, Auburn was dying. She was at 19% lung function, on oxygen, and in a wheelchair. She was months from dying when she got a miracle in a double lung transplant. 

Auburn still has cystic fibrosis, she has had 6 sinus surgeries since transplant. There is no cure for cf, but she is 34, 20 years past when doctors told us to expect her to die. Because of the cystic fibrosis foundation, people are living well into adulthood. But, we need to find a cure, so that everyone with cystic fibrosis can live full life. 

Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis and a life free from the burden of this disease. We will not leave anyone behind. You are an important part of our progress. Together, let’s make CF stand for Cure Found.
