Frank DeFordWords of touching wisdom were shared by author, HBO commentator, "Real Sports" correspondent, and past president of the Cystic Fibrosis Society, Frank DeFord. Perhaps Frank’s words should be remembered by all who share this mission!

"I asked my 6 year old daughter, Alex, what she wanted to be when she grew up and her response was, " A princess"! …after many difficult therapy sessions of trying to dislodge mucous from her very clogged, Cystic, lungs by literally pounding her back …I had occasion to ask again what she wanted to be, but her goal had changed …when asked why, she said "Because Daddy, my crown will fall off." … What your organization does by providing teddies and hugs of hope is to return to these hurting children the belief that they really are the prince and princess’ of their dreams.
