65for65roses Eva's dad is turning 65 this spring. He thought it fitting to train for and to ride in the GearUp4CF 1200 km/9 day cycle from Vancouver to Banff in June. His goal is lofty ... to raise $65,000 for CF research, in honour of Eva and her 65_redroses legacy. Scientists are making amazing progress in developing new treatments that can significantly help CF sufferers. Training is very challenging but fundraising is even more difficult. All donations go to support CF research. How can you help?

SUPPORT Bill's ride</b>. Go to the 65for65 blog and click on the donate button. You can also follow Bill's training as he prepares for the big ride over the next several months. FYI, a tax receipt will be issued by CF Canada for donations over $20.

SHARE this blog and fundraising appeal to all you know with an interest in supporting Eva's hope for a better life for CF patients.

Here is the blog URL! Thank you for your support

My Dream for CF …

heart arms
Eva had many dreams for herself and for others suffering from Cystic Fibrosis. Near the end of her life, Eva began to dream of leaving a legacy that would carry on … a legacy of love and of hope and of remembrance. On February 18 2010, Eva wrote …


a mark on the world
a difference
some proof that i had been here
something to say that i mattered
that when my body left this world my soul had made its imprint


Well, this she has done. In the three and a half years since her death, Eva has inspired appeals and events that have raised 1.4 million dollars for CF research. We still receive letters and messages from those who continue to be inspired by her.
She has also had a huge impact on organ donor awareness through the 'Live life, pass it on' campaign that uses the images she created with her friend Cyrus.
At the recent CF 65 Roses Gala in Vancouver, this video 'My Dream for CF, was created to inspire people to contribute to the Keys to a Cure appeal. It was very successful. Eva truly has made a mark on the world.
