Please vote for my daughter to win a Scholarship ....

Please help my daughter avoid a life-long educational debt by simply voting for her to win this Graduate Scholarship. It is easy. .. just vote here:

Thank you!!!

This is my daughter earning her undergraduate degrees in Sociology and Women's Studies .... but she is not finished yet ... now it is on to Grad School to work on her Master's Degree in Social Work... obviously this in not a high paying profession but it is an area when she will be able to help many young people (possibly focusing on disabilities and/or becoming a counselor).

My daughter, Kellisa, is a Graduate student studying Social Work. She already has been awarded a $2,500 AbbVie CF Scholarship based on her impressive academic excellence, extracurricular activities, creativity and ability to serve as a positive role model for the cystic fibrosis (CF) community... but she can win an even larger scholarship with your help.  Now through Monday, September 16, 2013, she will compete against other outstanding students living with CF for public votes to win a larger scholarship for a total award of $21,000 to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the AbbVie CF Scholarship program (previously known as the CFCareForward Scholarship).

Approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States are living with CF, an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems. Today, more than 45 percent of people living with CF are aged 18 or older. In patients with CF, a thick, sticky mucus is produced in certain organs throughout the body, most commonly the lungs and digestive system. The mucus build-up in the lungs can cause difficulty breathing and may lead to life-threatening lung infections. In the digestive system, the thick mucus may prevent proper food digestion.
