The "65 Roses" story. 
In 1965 Mary Weiss became a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation volunteer after learning her three boys all had CF. As she was calling local clubs and groups tying to raise money for CF research her 4 year old son, Richard, heard her and said, "I know what you are working for. You're working for 65 Roses."
For over 40 years 65 Roses has been used by children to describe their disease. It makes it easier to say but it doesn't make it any easier to live with the ugly fact that CF is the number-one genetic killer of children and young adults.
We hope every time you see beautiful roses you'll think of Richard, his two brothers, and the thousands with Cystic Firbosis. Thank you for your support.
