It takes a team and The Office of Gallatin County in Bozeman, MT. formed a softball team and played with hearts full of love in hopes to draw awareness of Cystic Fibrosis. Being strong supporters of The Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation, Gallatin County Softball Team would like to stike out Cystic Fibrosis.
Whether you make a donation, spread awareness, become an organ donor, or just simply believe in hope for a cure, CDBF hopes that the kindness of others, will inspire you to always try and help people in need and to truly make a difference in the life of those with this disease called cystic fibrosis.
Attain Health was created in 2016 through the collaborative efforts of Mike and Kat Porco from Red Lodge, Montana.
Attain Health empowers patients with cystic fibrosis by partnering with them to develop the skills necessary
to optimize daily care and regain control over their health. Attain’s platform of Integrative Health
and Physical Performance Coaching offers clients the opportunity to set personal health goals,
develop implementation plans, establish positive habits and overcome inevitable setbacks to
achieve their vision of health.
Attain Health has served over 125 members of the cystic fibrosis community.
Together, we can make a world a better place.
A special Thank you to Meghan’s Light Inc. Sometimes people are brought into our world for a reason. Meghans Light was formed by Meghan’s family after cystic fibrosis took her life at the age of 39.
The Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation is in the planning stages for their 2nd annual Mothers Retreat and Meghan’s Light Inc. is sending a mother from the New York area to this retreat in beautiful Big Sky Montana.
We are forever touched by the goodness of others in this fight against cystic fibrosis. From near and far we help each other. Words can not describe how incredible and compasionate Meghan’s Light portrays. From Boston to Montana, our journey begins to get to know each other better.
Meghan’s Light, whose mission is to support finding a cure for cystic fibrosis and to inspire hope and courage in patients, families and communities impacted by cystic fibrosis. Meghan’s Light remembers the light without and the light within that radiated from Meghan during her earthly journey and the continued presence of her light that shines brightly today.

Climb for Cody
In celebration of my 50th birthday I plan to complete climbing the 50 highest peaks in New Hampshire. Of these 50 climbs, 48 of them are part of the 4000 Footers, which I first started hiking with my friend Denise several years ago. Since then, Bruno and I have been hiking the 4000 Footers together. The other two mountains that make the 50 highest peaks in New Hampshire are, Sandwich Dome and The Bulge. These two are just short of 4,000 feet in elevation. My goal is to hike the remaining 11 summits on the list of 50 highest peaks, ending a climb to Mount Moriah (#50) in October with Bruno, Denise and a few other friends.
When I hike in the mountains I feel very alive, present and connected to my surroundings. The ability to climb mountains, to have the sensation of my heart pounding in my chest and my lungs working hard to fuel my body with oxygen is a blessing I don’t take for granted. For those living with Cystic Fibrosis, like my brother Michael and my cousin Stacy, every breath is precious, and sometimes just getting through the day feels like climbing a mountain.
It was through my brother Michael that I came to know about the Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation that was formed to honor Cody Nicole Dieruf. Cody passed away April 28, 2005, from Cystic Fibrosis at the age of 23. Her family formed the Foundation to carry on Cody’s legacy and to help others who live with Cystic Fibrosis. The Foundation has helped patients by covering costs of medicines, co-pays, and therapy equipment.
In lieu of gifts or a grand celebration, I invite family and friends to make a donation to The Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation. I will match very dollar donated for Climbing for Cody, and Pfizer, who generously offer a matching gift program to employees, will also match each dollar.
Please consider a donation to The Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation to help me celebrate reaching this milestone of being 50 years old!
