What Would You Do If Your Life Expectancy Was 7?

Carmel Valley: A Place of Giving

What would you do if you were told you would only live for seven years?  Well that is what Carmel Valley San Diego community business-owner Russ Petrone’s parents were told regarding his sister Leslie.  Thankfully, Leslie is now 44 years young and has joined forces with her brother Russ to start a movement to bring about awareness regarding Cystic Fibrosis.  Together they have been part of local fundraisers, walks, and outreach programs to spread the message of hope for those with CF. Russ Petrone’s real estate company, Petrone Properties,  donates and participates annually for the cause, and recruits as many locals to join in on the campaign.  He has even organized an annual golf tournament for those eager to help in a fun way.  If you have a sibling, you understand the love that naturally exists between most siblings.

What makes this Carmel Valley San Diego community sibling dynamic duo of brother and sister unique is that they work together to not only fight against Leslie’s battle with Cystic Fibrosis, but have started a movement to spread awarness in order to help other CF survivors.  Its extremly unfortunate for anyone to have to deal with such a disorder yet Leslie is a prime example of someone that has reached deep within oneself and found hope, and has decided to share that with the world.  While many people would be devasted having to deal with Cystic Fibrosis, Leslie has turned her disorder into an opportunity to give to others.  It is her hope and passion to help others, that keeps her going.  If you’d like more information about Russ and Leslie’s mission or how you can help, please visit http://www.cff.org/Chapters/sandiego/index.cfm?id=17406&event=17406
