65 Roses

Right now, the Topel Household is in full-mode CF fund raising. Sometimes it gets overwhelming. Most of the time it's so emotional.

Especially our fundraiser, 65 Roses for Cayden, Trinity, and Cooper.

We started this fundraiser 5 years ago.

Why the 65 roses? I love this story.

You want to know how God works in miraculous and unforeseen ways? My mom's first cousin owns a flower shop. He's such a providential God! She has donated each year 200-500 roses so that we could make tons of money for CF.

This year we showed our montage before Mass was over and sold roses after 4 Masses at our parish in Jefferson. We shared how much hope we still have in a cure so very soon. We aren't wealthy. We don't have special talents. We simply love our children. We have big hearts and a big dream of defeating CF. That's all.

We sold all but 4 roses. And we raised.....

$3,520!

All for the CF FOUNDATION!
It was such a huge blessing. We have the most wonderful and loving friends.

Unbelievable.

This is what love looks like...65 roses for CF!
