I ROSE UP for all people with CF

Hi, I'm Andy Lipman, I'm 48 years old and I am excited to share that I am now part of ROSE UP, a virtual fundraising event created and led by adults with cystic fibrosis. Now in its second year, the goal of ROSE UP is to raise $350,000 to help advance the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s mission – to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. My goal is to raise $165,000 in memory of my mom Eva Lipman who we lost in November to cancer. Mom was never afraid to ask people to help fund a cure for cystic fibrosis for the daughter she lost to the disease and the son who continues to fight it. My mom was a trailblazer.

Recognized globally, the CF Foundation has led the way in the fight against cystic fibrosis, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. Working alongside the CF community, the Foundation has fostered the development of more than a dozen CF treatments – an unprecedented number in a short span of time -- and helped add decades of life for people with CF.   

Despite this progress, many people with CF currently do not benefit from existing therapies. I'm fortunate to have an existing therapy but knowing there are so many others without  one provides me with incentive to raise more funds. I hope you can help me.

I am proud to be part of ROSE UP this year along with others in the CF community who dream of the day when CF stands for Cure Found.  Please join me!

Thank you in advance. Whether you make a donation, raise awareness about CF by sharing your story and tagging #ROSEUPCF on social media, or do both – you are making a powerful difference for people living with CF.
