On Saturday, May 15th a crowd gathered to hear
the story of “Sixty-five Roses” before beginning their walk towards
finding a cure for this disease that affects
the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United
States alone.  

In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to
attend elementary school.  Today, advances in research and medical treatments
have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF.  Many
people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and
beyond.  To find out more about Cystic Fibrosis or how you can donate to the cure, please go to www.cff.org.
