Who We Are
Breathe Believe is based on the premise that everyone with Cystic Fibrosis deserves a chance to fight the disease. We are a community of love made up of family, friends and dedicated supporters, who stand by those in need of help to manage their disease. Anyone is welcome to join my community of love to support those living with Cystic Fibrosis. Breathe Believe will be proactive. We, as a community, will devote our time and effort to raising money so no one with CF should go without the necessary medicine and care. No one should have to think twice for treatment because they cannot afford it. No one should have to be turned away from a lung transplant because they cannot pay for it. No one should die from CF because there is no cure and they cannot get what they need.
Breathe Believe is a nonprofit organization founded by Angela Ruggeri and is made up of family, friends and dedicated businesses to raise funds to provide financial assistance to individuals with cystic fibrosis who cannot afford the essentials to stay alive. We will give hope to those struggling with CF who find themselves unable to pay insurmountable bills for necessary medications and hospitalizations. We will support research devoted to finding a cure for CF. Angela Ruggeri initiated Breathe Believe to honor all those who have given of themselves to keep her alive: To those who much is given, much is expected.
