How can the Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation thank you all enough for all that our community and surrounding areas do for us. We are in awe of all your support and love. We will always be thankful that 11 years ago, our community came to our aid when we lost our daughter, Cody to Cystic Fibrosis. Many many thanks to all of you.
I have wishes to keep excelling in many activities like skiing hockey hunting hiking and biking! I also want to improve my horsemanship skills! In life I want to be an inspiration to others by having a good outlook and attitude on life. Showing them that even with a serious illness like cf people can still carry a smile everyday and be hard working and successful! I have a dream that less and less people suffer each year due to the advancements in medical technology! But until then I hope we can all keep our heads high, our smiles big and to appreciate this beautiful thing we are all blessed to be apart of, called life.
Thank you ginny! I hope that was helpful! Let me know if I can do anything else to help!

When our daughter, Cody was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of 9 years old, I knew we had a journey ahead of us. We wanted to make her life as normal as possible, give her strength and guidance in her life to live her life independently with CF.
Cody Quote: ” I guess I could say that I am approaching my old age now. Cystic Fibrosis is my old age. I already have the achy joints and the crepe paper lungs of an 80 year-year old man laughing in my abdomen, snoring behind my sternum.”A
