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.
It opened our eyes to how dedicated they all are at Vertex and what a truly wonderful company it is. It was truly mind blowing to actually see what certain departments do to find new ways to help people with CF and other diseases to breathe easier and live the best life they can. We were able to see a lot of the equipment they use to research, develop, design, etc., and learn about many of their methods and processes they use to do the great things they do.
We met many wonderful people that day – Addison, Ryan, Mike, “Katie” (my dear friend Sally’s daughter), Suzanne and Matt. The Breathe for Bea Foundation can’t thank each of you, as well as everyone at Vertex, enough for all you do, and for making yesterday “a good day for a good day!”
Again, thank you for all your continued efforts and finding the energy and resolve to challenge yourselves everyday so that people with debilitating diseases might breathe easier.
