Moms, We Care. Moms Retreat in 2017

Need a break? Could your perspective and energy levels use a boost? If you’re like just about any other mom in the world, you’ll say a big “yes” to both of these questions.

Watch for details. The Cody Foundation want to thank our mothers in Montana for being such good moms and treat them to a 3 day retreat. Mothers of Cystic Fibrosis Children, we care and are working very hard to make this happen, and very excited. Please stay tuned. Empowering women, one story at a time.images

This will be an incredible 5 course meal, with wine pairings for each course. Please join us to raise money to support local families living with cystic fibrosis.      *Cash/check only*

6 to 11 year olds approved for Orkambi.

Last week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the use of lumacaftor/ivacafter (Orkambi) for children with cystic fibrosis ages 6 to 11, who have two copies of the most common CF gene mutation, F508del. The decision means that about 2,400 additional children in the U.S. are eligible to receive the drug, bringing the total number of those eligible for the treatment in the U.S. to nearly 11,000.
