Inspiring Hope and Happiness for Those with Cystic Fibrosis

Inspiring Hope and Happiness for Those with Cystic Fibrosis

Make An Impact

Through the tireless efforts of our staff, board, volunteers and partners, much dedication and energy goes into fulfilling each wish, while also making it special and unique for every patient. However, all of this would not be possible without the donation of time, energy and money.

Because funding is such a challenge, we ask that you consider participating however you can. Our goal is to share the wonderful experience of giving a child or young adult, the opportunity to take a breather from the struggles of their disease.

Below are several ways you can Pay-it-Forward and together we can all make a difference for someone battling CF!

Host a Fundraiser

Consider having your own fundraiser and making Take A Breather the beneficiary. It can be a simple as turning your personal passion into a fundraising cause such as a walk or run, bowling, jean day at work or school, musical concerts, art shows and countless others. Turn your birthday celebration into a fundraising cause that will benefit the lives of children battling Cystic Fibrosis.

Facebook makes it easy to host a fundraiser on your page to support Take A Breather. Facebook takes care of everything. Set it up, share it with your friends and Facebook takes care of the details.

Sponsor an Event

We host several fundraising events throughout the year and offer sponsorship opportunities for each. This is a great vehicle to get your message out to the community while making an impact for those living with Cystic Fibrosis. Please visit our event pages or contact Bruce Leto Jr. at or 610-664-1826.
