WHO
WE ARE

Some may say CF Vests for Life was spawned though coincidence, while others say there is no such thing as coincidence.  

In early January 2020, a young lady with CF living in Chile, whom Rod had never met, contacted him on social media, and asked if he had a Vest to donate. After some thought, Rod realized he could donate his own, as  he no longer needed it post-transplant. Two or three weeks later, another CFer, this time in Lebanon, also one whom Rod had never met, contacted him via social media, and requested a Vest. After posting the ask on Facebook, a young lady with CF in Ohio offered to donate hers which she no longer needed, and Rod was fortunate to facilitate the transfer.  

Rod began to think there must be a wider gap in our community beyond just these two he had observed, and one that could be filled by the transfer of Vests from CFers who no longer needed them, to those in our community who are without the means of obtaining this life-extending tool.  

It was during this time when Rod began to work with fellow CFer Mark Tremblay during a CF conference, and shared with him his Vest transfer stories. Seeing that, both grasped this vision of a quest to fill this void between the Vest haves and have nots in our CF community, in June 2020, the CF Vests for Life Foundation was created.
