It is with a heavy heart that I share the passing of Mary G. Weiss, who died on April 16 at the age of 77. Mary was the mother of three children with CF -- one of whom coined the term “65 Roses” -- and became one of the early pioneers of the CF Foundation. Mary's fierce courage and commitment in the fight against this disease fueled great progress and will continue to inspire our work. Without heroes like Mary, the CF Foundation could not have made the advancements we have made.
I encourage you to read about Mary's many achievements in the battle against CF.
