Since the first 65 Roses Gala in 2001 we have raised over $4 million for life changing cystic fibrosis research, care and advocacy. During this time, we have also seen the estimated median age of survival for someone with cystic fibrosis increase from 35 years to 53.3 years. This is among the highest in the world, however there is still much to do. According to our most recent data of patients who lost their battle to cystic fibrosis, half were under 32 years of age.
