CFFHEADSHOTS-86-EditThis year, I have the proud honor of being recognized as one of “Hartford’s Finest” by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which on top of being a wonderful experience and an exquisite honor, also affords me the opportunity to learn and talk about the amazing work the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is doing. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been a pivotal organization not only in their support of research, but also in their dedication to patients living with Cystic Fibrosis. I’ve learned so much in my short time with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF)- and I so appreciate you taking the time to let me share that with you. As part of this honor, I’ve committed to raising funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation that will help them develop new medicines and treatments, help partner with providers, and invest in patient quality of life and access to resources. It’s through program’s like Hartford’s Finest that CFF where funds are raised that help us see that a cure can be in sight in our lifetime. They’ve already moved that needle so much and are tirelessly and rigorously progressing toward a cure. If you’d like to support, you can contribute to my campaign directly or purchase a ticket to the event! OR, you can join me at “Putt Up or Shut Up” a Mini-Golf Tournament on July 24th or at the Glastonbury Sweet Frog on July 18th from 6-8PM where a portion of proceeds will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
