Spotlight On:

There's nothing that inspires me more to be active and compassionate in the CF community than to see others with CF doing great things. I'd like to tell you about a website that is doing just that. is just one recent example of one person's commitment and drive to do something positive for the CF community. Ronnie, a cystic fibrosis patient in Arizona, started the site as a way to raise money for cystic fibrosis research.

Here's what Ronnie has to say about the site's goal and purpose:

The sole purpose of this website is to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis research, so people that live with the disease might have a chance to have a fuller, longer life. The way this happens is through money donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation who in turn supplies pharmaceutical companies with the necessary grants and funds to continue vital research. The ultimate goal of course being, to find a cure for this disease that affects roughly 35,000 patients.
The cost of life-saving research is high, and so are the stakes. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the leading and nearly sole provider of the funds needed for CF research. Sources estimate that just 5 minutes of research costs $1,200. That's a mighty steep bill when you consider the length of time it takes to develop a new product and make it available to cystic fibrosis patients is helping put a few more pennies in that piggy bank with each transaction initiated through its site.

100 percent, as in ALL of the proceeds generated by are donated directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. There's zero effort on your part. All you have to do is shop online as you normally would availing yourself of the links on the site. I know it's tax season and the economy isn't booming, but please consider spending your money on before you use another online retailer. You'll feel good about your purchase, knowing that you have helped improved the quality of life for me, Ronnie, and the thousands of CF patients worldwide.
