CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION
I have been a supporter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation since 1990. In 2004, CF touched my life directly when my nephew, Tate (below, summer 2011) was unexpectedly diagnosed at birth. For the past seven years, I have watched my sister’s family struggle with the physical, emotional and financial challenges of CF.
In response, I donate my time and a percentage of each commission and product to help find a cure for CF, a genetic disease that leads to fatal lung infections and digestive issues.
Tate is doing well despite some health challenges, thinks he is the smartest 1st grader ever and of course, and LOVES baseball (he will be playing in the major leagues at 18 — and he is probably right).
