Melts our hearts and our ice cream.

Super fun day for our Rosebud CF Superheroes!  We were able to deliver some super-sized checks to the Reaching Out Foundation and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!!!

First we met Susan Burroughs, the founder of the Reaching Out Foundation.  She helps local CF families that are struggling financially.  Some months there are CF families that have to decide if they will spend their money this month on groceries for their family or CF meds.  Susan is there to help so they don't HAVE to make that choice but can instead afford both.  The ROF is such an important part of our Georgia CF community.

Next we met with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation that helps fund research on a national level.  Their funding of research has resulted in several of Elena's current meds that keep the difficulties of life with Cystic Fibrosis at bay.

We were treated to ice cream on this hot July day!  The kids really liked this day.  Lunch cream...and zip lock baggies of gummy bears to take home.  Made for a wild afternoon!

The Rosebuds are so thrilled to be a part of making the world a better place through their involvement with Miles for CF.  Our teams 65ROSES (Super Adults) and Rosebuds (Kiddo CF Superheroes) are quite a dynamic duo!  Thank you to the people behind these organizations that are truly making a difference in the lives of those with Cystic Fibrosis.  We are thankful for EACH of you and your dedication to adding tomorrows to those living with CF!  You simply melt our hearts!
