I am excited to share that I am the ambassador for the Heart of America chapter for 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.
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 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.
This year I am Rosing Up by hosting my very own Rose Up Olympics. I created 7 events that are all CF related and very unique. I look forward to Rosing Up with you all.
Thank you so much for your support. 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.
Let’s ROSE UP together!
