Take A Breather Gala

In times of uncertainty, we are reminded of how important it is to hold tight to hope. Few know this better than our friends with cystic fibrosis.

Beginning 25 years ago with the dream to give back to others with cystic fibrosis, the Take A Breather Foundation mission has always been to inspire hope and happiness in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis.

Our 2020 Take A Breather Gala is a Celebration of Hope, a time to unite in-person and virtually to celebrate Hope, which guides us through the most challenging of times. From across the country, we invite you to join us as we gather to inspire hope for our friends with CF. We will celebrate the hope within each of us- and our capacity to bring it out in one another. We will unite our own hope with action and join to provide breathers, allowing those with cystic fibrosis to nurture the light of hope within… To hold tight to a kite string, letting it raise your spirits and guide you when all around you is uncertain… to inspire hope.

The evening will kick off with a message from our keynote speaker, Christian A. Bermudez, MD, Surgical Director, Lung Transplantation and ECMO, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Bermudez performed life-saving transplants for both Maddi and Matt along with countless others.

We will be premiering “Maddi’s Miracle,” the inspiring and incredible story of Maddi Bertrand’s transplant journey. Maddi is a former wish recipient who took a magical breather from CF in Hawaii. This was the beginning of a bond that would ultimately lead to her life-saving lung transplant thanks to Dr. Bermudez and the Penn Transplant team.

 

Take A Breather Foundation’s largest annual fundraising event is the premier ticket for the CF Community! This spectacular event features an unforgettable night of wishes. This consistently sold-out gala isn’t just a party…it’s powerful philanthropy.

The 4th Annual Take A Breather Gala will take place virtually on the evening of Thursday, December 3rd, and we invite you to tune in and watch along with family friends and members of the CF community.

All proceeds from the evening provide those battling cystic fibrosis the opportunity to take a breather from their disease and further our mission of Inspiring Hope and Happiness for Those with CF.
