The Wheezers Story
I stride in memory of my mom and sister, Karen & Heather Beuth, and to honor my aunt, Tricia Bramlet. Three immediate family members all diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. My mom passed away in August 1997 and Heather passed away on Valentine's Day 2023. Tricia is still fighting the good fight against CF and winning.
Several years ago, The Wheezers were born and named by Heather. Her birthday is on May 28th and what better way to remember her than bring back the team to raise money to help others who are still living with CF, like Tricia, and also remembering Karen.
Several years ago, The Wheezers was born and named by Heather.
Nearly 40,000 people in the United States have cystic fibrosis: a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who face the sobering prospect of a shortened lifespan. I walk for them.
Working alongside the CF community, the CF Foundation has fostered the development of more than a dozen CF treatments and helped add decades of life for people with CF. Yet, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies. Our vision is a cure for every person with cystic fibrosis – a life free from the burden of this disease – and we will not leave anyone behind.
