    Help Emily and the 30,000 other Americans living with Cystic Fibrosis.

    Emily Kramer-Golinkoff is a daughter, a sister, a friend, a UPenn graduate, and most of all an inspiration.

    Emily, her family, friends, and members of the Philadelphia area community; have teamed up to create Emily’s Entourage, a foundation to make a difference in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis.
    Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a progressive genetic disease of the lungs and digestive system which affects Emily and 30,000 other people in the U.S.

    What started out as a small-scale fundraiser for a local CF stair climb turned into a quest to raise $50,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

    At the beginning of December, Emily’s Entourage created a Facebook page asking people to join the team to find a cure and help raise money for CF research, care, and education. By Dec. 8, Emily’s Entourage already collected nearly $40,000 in donations.

    The 26-year old works in health care marketing and is currently pursuing a master degree in bioethics.   She does all this while going through hours of treatment each day.
