In January 2016 CCF received a bequest from the Will of Marjorie Gibson for the very generous amount of $20,000.
Marjorie and her husband, Lawrence, had 2 children with Cystic Fibrosis. Eleanor died in 1953 at the age of 19 months and her sister, Gwenda, passed away aged 12 in 1972. Gwenda was diagnosed at 6 months old and, whilst Eleanor was not officially diagnosed, her symptoms were very similar to Gwenda’s.
Marjorie recently passed away at the age of 96 and had always hoped that a cure would be found for Cystic Fibrosis. We, too, hope that Marjorie’s wish will be fulfilled and her bequest of $20,000 will be put to good use to help fund research into finding a cure for CF.
Thank You so much Marjorie.
