Amy Polowy Has Been Nominated as Rising Star 2015 of Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

 

Amy Polowy has been nominated by her peers to be a Rising Star as part of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The event is an eight-week campaign that honors a group of young professionals who work to find a cure for CF through their careers.

cffCystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. When the Foundation began in 1955, most children with CF did not live to see their first day of elementary school. Today, the median predicted age of survival for a person with CF is in the mid-30s. This is remarkable progress, however, we continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit www.cff.org.
