Join the 65 Roses Club

The 65 Roses Club® is a group of people who give monthly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, united by their commitment to a common mission: to make CF stand for Cure Found. Their ongoing loyalty provides a steady, reliable stream of support that enables the Foundation to fund highly innovative research and drug development, and provide high-quality, specialized care for people with CF. 

The “65 Roses” story dates back to 1965 when an observant 4-year-old, Richard "Ricky" Weiss, hearing the name of his disease for the first time, pronounced cystic fibrosis as "65 Roses." Today, “65 Roses” is a term often used by young children with CF to pronounce the name of their disease. But, making it easier to say does not make CF any easier to live with. While we have made significant progress, there is still no cure.

“I wanted a way to make regular donations without challenging my budget. The 65 Roses Club makes it easy for donors to choose an amount that fits their ability to give. Even a small monthly amount adds up to make a big difference.” — Eileen McConville, mother of an adult with CF and 65 Roses Club member
