Hi everyone! We wanted to give you an update on what has been going on at the Breathe for Bea Foundation in the past few months and weeks. Weve really got people talking in the CF community and, as a result, our organization has been extremely busy lately, thats for sure.
We’ve been really busy here at the Foundation since the start of the new year! Aside from opening up our scholarship program for the 2019 fall semester and getting numerous applications for assistance, our care packages continue to be a big hit with the Cystic Fibrosis community. We have received a number of requests in the first few weeks of 2019, and recently sent out a care package to an 8 year old girl in Michigan, another to Ohio to an 18 year old girl, and one to Florida to a 53 year old woman. We hope to be able to fulfill many more as the year goes on.
Recently, members of Team Beastrong had the pleasure of visiting Vertex Pharmaceuticals in the Boston Seaport District. We were able to meet the scientists and staff that work tirelessly to eradicate Cystic Fibrosis and other devastating diseases, and tour their wonderful facility.
Exciting news today! The Breathe for Bea Foundation was featured on the front page of the Carver Reporter today, as well on their website. The story talks about the inspiration behind our Foundation – Ashley “Bea” Briggs – and how we hope to help and support other individuals and families who are fighting Cystic Fibrosis.
Today truly is a good day for a good day! The Breathe for Bea Foundation is officially incorporated as a non-profit organization! We are extremely excited and want to thank each and everyone of you that has shown us love and support since Bea’s passing in early 2017, and continues to do so. We are truly grateful.
