About Sixty Five Roses -Cystic Fibrosis

The story behind why cystic fibrosis is referred to as "65 Roses" by young children:

In 1965, after learning that her three little boys had Cystic Fibrosis, Mary G. Weiss began volunteering to raise money to cure cystic fibrosis. One of her duties was to call every civic club, social and service organization seeking financial support for CF research. Mary's four year old son, Richard, listened closely to his mother as she made each call. After several calls, Richard came into the room and told his mom, "I know what you are working for."

Mary was dumbstruck because Richard did not know what she was doing, nor did he know he had Cystic Fibrosis. With some trepidation, Mary posed the question back to Richard, "What am I working for, Richard?"

"You are working for '65 Roses'," he answered so sweetly. Mary was speechless. She went over to him and tenderly pressed his tiny body to hers. He could not see the tears running down Mary's cheeks as she stammered, "Yes, Richard, I'm working for '65 Roses'."

You can help support those living with cystic fibrosis with every purchase from the Crystal Allure Beaded Jewelry Designs' Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Jewelry Collection.

About Cystic Fibrosis Handmade Jewelry

May is National Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) affects approximately 30,000 children and young adults in the United States. CF causes a sticky, thick mucus to line the lungs, small intestines, sweat glands and pancreas. This results in the deterioration of lung tissue making it difficult to breathe. It also prevents necessary nutrient absorption in the small intestine and blocks pancreatic ducts from releasing digestive enzymes. 1 in every 23 Americans are symptomless carriers of the CF gene.

Crystal Allure Beaded Jewelry Designs is a proud supporter of the Lungs for Life Foundation. LFL provides assistance and services to those living with cystic fibrosis and their families. Crystal Allure Beaded Jewelry Designs has made significant strides in raising awareness of this hereditary disease since 2004 with the sales from our Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Bracelets Collection. For every bracelet sold a portion of the proceeds gets donated to the Lungs for Life Foundation.

As one who was personally affected with cystic fibrosis in my family I know all to well the struggles one faces daily with trying to live life and manage their health. My brother passed away in 1998 after fighting cystic fibrosis for 33 years. It was after seeing his daily struggles that I founded and continue to support the Lungs for Life Foundation.

Be a part of making a difference in the life of someone, or their family, with cystic fibrosis with your purchase of one of our beautiful and meaningful handmade cystic fibrosis awareness jewelry pieces.

Thank you in advance for your support and generosity.
