the FORCE- Friends Of Ross Caring Everyday
When The FORCE was first established in 2009, our family was just beginning this journey of a life affected by cystic fibrosis. The doctors and nurses told us what we needed to do everyday to keep Ross as healthy as possible for as long as possible. We learned the facts and struggled with the emotions of an uncurable disease with a very limited life expectancy. But it was the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF)that gave us hope.
With the CFF and the creation of The Force, we became empowered. We were overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and support from our friends and family. We realized that we would not only get through this but we can make a difference.
Over the last ten years we have seen considerable advancements toward not just treatment of the affects of the disease but actuallly progress toward a cure. All thanks to the support of the CFF which is the number one contributer of research and medication development for CF. In fact the CFF was rated #6 out of 8,000 charities in the nation by Charity Navigator who rate charities by evaluating financial health and accountability
