The Cody Dieruf Story
The Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation was formed to honor Cody Nicole Dieruf, who passed away April 28, 2005, from Cystic Fibrosis at the age of 23. Her family formed the Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation to carry on Cody’s Legacy and to help others who live with Cystic Fibrosis.
The love and happiness Cody so generously shared with her family, friends, and everyone around her will live on forever in our hearts. Her courage, grace, and determination are — and always will be — an inspiration. We will never forget her shining personality, loving heart, and beautiful mind.
Cody Dieruf was a beautiful, intelligent, gifted young woman who, at age 23, lost her battle with Cystic Fibrosis, just eleven days before she was to graduate from college.
Cody knew that she was only going to have a short time to live her life and she did everything she could to experience all that life had to offer. She was an inspiration to all who knew and loved her. Through the foundation her family established in honor of Cody, her memory continues to inspire many who’ve never met her.
Before her death, Cody had asked her parents, George and Ginny, to help others who are fighting this debilitating disease. There is no cure, but there many improvements in treatments.
We have expanded to 5 counties in Montana: Gallatin, Broadwater, Carbon, Madison, and Park.
The Foundation, whose tagline is Breathin is Believin, is committed to supporting families, both financially and emotionally, to children and deserving adults living Cystic Fibrosis.
