Help Find A Cure

I know a wonderful young lady who participates in normal daily activities such as school, homework, sports but also has regular doctor's visits, takes a lot of medicine and watches for any sign her lungs/body aren't functioning right, her name is Andrea and she has Cystic Fibrosis.

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is making a huge difference in extending the quality of life for those with CF. 

Each year we make donations to our favorite causes and every one of them is important in helping find a Cure.  But bringing awareness to these causes is also important, that's why I'm posting this.  Cystic Fibrosis is a cause I've been supporting for years, they've made progress in their research but as always there's more to be done.  We're working and fighting for a Cure, so if you're interested in a worthy cause this is it.
 
GREAT STRIDES is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest and most successful national fundraising event. Making a donation is easy and secure! Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively, as nearly 90 cents of every dollar of revenue raised is available for investment in vital CF programs to support research, care and education.  Just click the "Donate Now" button on my side bar to make a donation that will be credited to the ANDREA'S ANGELS team. Any amount donated is greatly appreciated! Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with CF! Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation and GREAT STRIDES!
