As another successful CF Awareness Month comes to a close, all of us at Emily’s Entourage are taking a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come…… When we pressed “send” on our very first fundraising email, we weren’t sure what donation goal to set or how high we could let our dreams soar.

Emily’s Entourage is pleased to have this month as an opportunity to shine the light on CF and on our efforts to combat this devastating disease. An awareness month is typically meant for educating the general public about a disease; but for CF, we know it’s really not about a disease at all.. it’s about people — 70,000 of them, to be exact. People who love cupcakes and hate pink, who have weird, quirky obsessions and pet peeves, and who are just like everyone else… and just...
