Shedding Light on Cystic Fibrosis

YourUpdateTV

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a rare, progressive, and genetic disease that currently affects about 40,000 people in the United States. CF is the result of a defective gene, inherited from each parent, and the disease can impact people of all races and ethnicities. Recently, KC White, Board Chair of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the disease, her personal journey, and how the Foundation is helping progress care and treatment options. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/8wj8u0JEqLU CF is a life-shortening disease that prevents our bodies from clearing mucus. This can lead to lung infections, poor nutrition, lung disease, and a host of unique challenges that can impact every aspect of a person’s life. When it was first discovered, it was considered a fatal pediatric disease. But due to transformative advancements in treatments and high-quality care, the life-expectancy for someone born with CF today is 56. While that number is climbing there is still a long way to go and unfortunately, not all people with CF equally benefit from this progress. KC White was elected chair of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Board of Trustees in 2022 after serving on the Board since 2005. Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at age 3, White has been a committed volunteer and inspiring advocate for the Foundation since childhood and is the first person with CF to serve as board chair. When she was diagnosed, she wasn’t expected to live past high school age, but her family refused to accept that fate, which prompted their dedication to the Foundation’s work. Because of recent treatments known as modulators, about 90% of the CF population (including KC) experienced an incredible transformation in their health. With this though, comes navigating unplanned challenges including careers, finances, family, and more. In addition to fueling the research, particularly in genetic therapies, that will lead to transformative treatments for the entire CF population, the CF Foundation works to support the CF community in all aspects of their lives through support programs and fostering connection opportunities. The CF Foundation is committed to finding a cure and providing all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives. The Foundation is aggressively funding research and drug development, advancing high-quality, specialized care, and partnering with and advocating for the CF community.

Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at age 3, White has been a committed volunteer and inspiring advocate for the Foundation since childhood, speaking at her first Foundation event when she was only 9 years old. She is the first person with CF to serve as board chair. White received her Master of Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2022 and currently serves as an assistant instructor in the program. She is also the Head Varsity Women’s Lacrosse coach for the Chagrin Falls, Ohio, Tigers. She and her husband, Justin, have one son, Mac.

The Foundation is committed to providing all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives by funding research and drug development, advancing high-quality, specialized care, and partnering with and advocating for the CF community. The Foundation funds more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support. The organization supports and accredits a national network of over 130 CF care centers recognized by the National Institutes of Health as a model of care for a chronic disease. Also, the Foundation manages support programs and fosters connection opportunities for the CF community. Based in Bethesda, Md., the Foundation’s impact is made possible by the work of nearly 70 local chapters across the country. Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com

Cardano, Raboo and Ordi are Trending This Week, Find Out Why

Total Media

The crypto market is buzzing this week. Cardano's got everyone talking, Raboo's making headlines, and Ordi's emerging as a dark horse. But what's the deal with all this excitement? Buckle up, crypto enthusiasts, because we're about to dive into the factors propelling these projects to the top. Cardano and Ordi have got their loyal fans, but Raboo's the one stealing the show with a mind-blowing 60% surge since launch and whispers of a 100x explosion from analysts. Read on to discover why these three currencies are trending and what makes Raboo the hottest name in crypto right now. Cardano's trend this week and its causes Cardano (ADA) has always been present in the crypto news arena, and recently, it has been back in the news again. As of June 17, 2024, it is being traded around $0.402. But it's not just about the price; the attention that is paid to Cardano is mostly focused on the next steps in its evolution. On June 9, Charles Hoskinson, creator of Cardano, announced on X that Cardano’s upcoming Chang fork is approaching quickly and that Cardano Node will likely reach version 9.0 this month. This update will improve the network for executing smart contracts. This is a significant development in Cardano and can place it at the same level as some of the leading Smart Contracts platforms, such as Ethereum. Cardano has many enthusiasts waiting for the actualisation of the proposed technology, and with this update, Cardano may pave itself as one of the great blockchains. While some analysts remain bullish about Cardano, we have seen that the future of this coin is still undecided, and only time will tell whether it will bring hope to its army of investors. The recent trend of Ordi Ordi (ORDI) is the dark horse newcomer shaking things up in the crypto world. While it may not be a household name yet, ORDI has recently seen a surge in interest. As of June 17, 2024, ORDI is trading around $41.80. But what's behind this uptick in attention? One factor could be Ordi’s new partnership with BidoFinance, a Bitcoin staking protocol, which has garnered significant community interest and contributed to the token's breakout. Ordi's unique value proposition as an "Inscriptions" cryptocurrency is also generating interest. This is where inscriptions are helpful; users can write informative text on the Bitcoin blockchain, and the information can never be erased, which paves the way for owning digital art or having a decentralised way of storing particular data. Altogether, Ordi is quite a young project, but its potential and new essential features alongside new partnerships attracted attention. On one hand, market gurus have undertaken forecasts that Ordi is a coin with the potential to grow in the future, while on the other hand, there are sceptics who are of the contrary opinion. Only time will tell if Ordi can live up to the hype, but one thing's for sure: it is a coin we should watch. Raboo: The memecoin with a mastermind Cardano and Ordi might be grabbing headlines, but the real party is happening in the meme coin realm, and Raboo is the guest of honour. This isn't your average doge-faced token chasing fleeting trends. Raboo's more like a meme maestro conducting an orchestra. Raboo's presale has been a smash hit, bringing in over a cool $1.7 million and rocketing a mind-blowing 60% since the presale started. But Raboo's not just about the hype. They've got the tech chops to back it up. Raboo's AI-powered meme generator lets you easily unleash your inner creator and craft viral content. Also, Raboo's "Post-to-Earn" platform rewards you for your humour. Experts are predicting a meteoric rise for Raboo, with some whispers of a 100x surge. With its innovative features and gamified social experience (coined SocialFi), Raboo is poised to become a memecoin leader. This is your chance to join the Raboo revolution. While Cardano and Ordi ponder their next moves, Raboo's already started the party. Get in early and make massive profits. Conclusion Hold onto your hats, crypto enthusiasts; this week's market is a rollercoaster of trending tokens. Cardano's loyal community is buzzing about upcoming smart contract features, while Ordi's partnership with a Bitcoin staking protocol has investors talking. But if you're looking for the most exciting project with a sprinkle of meme magic, Raboo is the name on everyone's lips. With experts predicting a 100x surge and the potential to become a top-tier meme coin, Raboo is an opportunity you don't want to miss. Don't wait on the sidelines; dive into the Raboo revolution and see where it takes you! This meme coin with a brain might be the smartest investment you make all year.

Elon Musk Boosts DOGE, Declares He Knows Dogwifhat. Raboo Surges 60%

Total Media

Elon Musk’s recent endorsement of DOGE and mention of Dogwifhat have sent ripples through the crypto market. Meanwhile, Raboo is currently in its fourth stage of presale, boasting a 60% increase since Stage 1. With over $1.7 million raised, 8,000 registered members, and 2,500 token holders, Raboo is gaining traction. Priced at just $0.0048, analysts predict Raboo will surge 100x on launch day and 233% during the presale. Let's explore why Raboo is poised to compete with top cryptocurrencies like Dogecoin. Elon Musk’s influence boosts Dogecoin Elon Musk’s tweets have consistently impacted Dogecoin (DOGE). In 2024, Musk's endorsements had driven a 68% surge in DOGE's price. A recent tweet by Musk honoring Kabosu, the original dog behind the Dogecoin meme, caused a bullish trend. Following his post, DOGE rose by nearly 5%. Despite a brief hike in social volume and dominance, both metrics have since dropped. The Dogecoin price remains volatile, influenced heavily by Musk’s actions. While Musk’s impact on DOGE is undeniable, the future trajectory of Dogecoin price is uncertain. Musk's influence propels Dogwifhat Elon Musk mentioned Dogwifhat during a live stream on X, causing an immediate price rally for the meme coin. The Solana-based WIF soared despite the overall bearish market trend. Musk's acknowledgment, even with a mispronunciation, sent the crypto community into a frenzy. The WIF price jumped, showcasing Musk's significant impact on cryptocurrencies. Historically, Musk's endorsements, like those for Dogecoin (DOGE), have led to major price surges, and WIF appears to be the latest beneficiary. Before Musk’s mention, WIF was struggling, but his declaration defied the market downturn, however since then WIF has seen a drop in price. This event highlights Musk's unparalleled influence in the crypto space, marking the first time he publicly acknowledged a meme coin other than DOGE. Raboo skyrockets: What’s behind the 60% surge? Raboo ($RABT) is making waves as a top cryptocurrency to buy in 2024. The significant gains during the presale have already created buzz and attracted early investors. This momentum is likely to continue, driving interest as the project progresses. Investors are keen to capitalize on early gains, contributing to Raboo's rapid price increase. Raboo's community-driven approach is a key factor. By fostering a large, engaged community of meme enthusiasts, Raboo enhances user engagement and loyalty. This organic growth through word-of-mouth and social sharing boosts its popularity. Raboo’s self-evolving AI technology allows users to participate in meme-generating contests, keeping it dynamic and engaging. This innovation differentiates Raboo from other meme coins and attracts tech-savvy users and investors. Raboo also offers staking options and a token-burning mechanism, providing long-term value and incentives for holding the token. These features appeal to investors looking for stability and returns. The upcoming launch of an NFT collection adds to Raboo's allure. Integrating NFTs can attract enthusiasts and collectors, further expanding its user base. Raboo’s innovative community-driven approach, staking options, NFT integration, and AI-based Rabooscan tool all contribute to its rising popularity and potential for future growth. Raboo is in the fourth stage of its presale. $RABT is currently priced at $0.0048, increasing by 60% since Stage 1. The presale has raised nearly $2 million, indicating strong investor interest. Analysts predict a 233% growth during the presale and a potential 100x increase on launch day. Raboo aims to join the top 20 cryptocurrencies by market cap, positioning itself to compete with popular tokens like Shiba Inu, Dogecoin, and Pepe. Conclusion Elon Musk's influence continues to drive DOGE and spark interest in Dogwifhat. Meanwhile, Raboo is making significant strides in its presale, with rapid sales highlighting strong investor enthusiasm. With its price up 60% since Stage 1 and predictions of a 100x surge on launch day, this is an excellent limited-time opportunity. Don’t miss out—join the Raboo presale today and secure your stake in this rising star of the crypto world. You can participate in the Raboo presale here.
