In 1973, when Gayle Greenberg’s son, Mitch, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, the Foundation was not what it is today. There were no Great Strides walks. The CF gene had yet to be discovered. Most children wouldn’t live to finish elementary school, and doctors at the time told Gayle she would be lucky if Mitch would see his ninth birthday. They were wrong.
This year, as we celebrate the 65th anniversary of the Foundation, Gayle reflects on how far we have come, together.
