Liv For A Cure, a 501(c)(3) 01-0735448 not for profit organization was founded to help over 30,000 children and young adults in the United States afflicted with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). This foundation is working with the Cystic Fibrosis Center at Children's Memorial Hospital to provide funding for research in hope of finding a cure and to provide a better quality of life while they fight this disease.
It became personal when our daughter Olivia was diagnosed in utero and doctors found a bowel obstruction. Olivia began life with a 5-hour surgery where they detected Cystic Fibrosis. Since then she has had many hospitalizations for chronic lung and pancreas problems.
This disease is something I must deal with daily. I cannot express to you the emotional price this disease has on those afflicted. I cannot dare to dream about planning her wedding or holding her children. I can only dream that she will have the opportunity for these things. Everyday we as parents wish we could take away the pain and transfer it to ourselves.
Through the funds we raise we are waging a valiant fight against CF and for our Olivia. Our foundation conducts fund raising activities that will aid the foundation in its support for research and development. It provides families with support and information in dealing with this disease daily. Today new drug treatments are being tested to improve the length and quality of life of people with CF. We have a long way to go and need your sponsorship, your donations, and your investments in life.
Invest in research, buy back life.
