Lisa would not be alive today if it wasn’t for the help of them. It would mean the world to Lisa and I if you could donate money to this amazing foundation. The money can be ear marked for research and goes right from CCF into the hands of the researchers. Currently there is no cure and patients with this horrible disease only have a 5 percent chance of a 5 year survival. We need to raise more money to give these researchers money in order to save people’s lives! Thank you for your consideration!
