Kate & Joe O'Donnell: Honoring the Past, Building a Future

Kate O'Donnell never met her brother Joey--he died of cystic fibrosis a few months before she was born. Soon after Joey died in 1986, Kate’s parents, Joe and Kathy, celebrated his memory by starting the Joey Fund and dedicated their lives to the search for a cure. As Kate grew up, the memory of her brother was the impetus for her to get involved, too. Along with her sister, Casey, Kate now runs the Joey Fund. Her day job is Assistant Director, Student and Young Alumni Engagement at Harvard Business School, where she harnesses her people skills on a daily basis. Joe O'Donnell is a one-of-a kind leader and an extraordinary champion in the fight against CF, helping to raise hundreds of millions of dollars in support of CF research. He’s also a Beantown legend--a serial entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and one of the "people who runs Boston", as named byBoston Magazine. A tough businessman, Joe nonetheless has an optimistic outlook on the future of CF research. We caught up with the da...

Corie King: From Nanny to Noodles

Corie King always knew she wanted a job that would help people but didn't know exactly what that would look like. That uncertainty extended into her early career, when she took a detour as a nanny for Kennedy, a child with CF. During her time as Kennedy's caretaker, Corie learned more about CF, fell in love with Kennedy and her family, and found her purpose. Ten years later, Corie is a board member for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Rocky Mountain Chapter and the Director of Field Marketing at Denver-based Noodles & Company, where her advocacy extends to the corporate world.

Drew Strube: Action Gets Action

When his son Major was diagnosed with CF, Iowa native Drew Strube's world began to grow. From local fundraising events to March on the Hill, Drew and his wife Jaci jumped in with both feet to help find a cure for their son, and for all people with CF. Drew has come to find a passion for mentoring the next generation of fundraisers and advocates by taking them under his wing the same way so many have done for him and Jaci over the last four years. We talked with Drew about that drive and how it's pushed him in his career and volunteer life. He also shares his experience as the CF Foundation’s National Advocacy Co-Chair, the virtues of small town living, and the awe-inspiring history of Washington, DC.

Jack Goodwin: Live Happy

Three years ago, Jack Goodwin met someone who changed his life. He began a whirlwind romance with a woman named Mallory Smith, a writer with CF, and that romance lasted the rest of her life. But when she died, Jack was at a crossroads of what to do with the rest of his life. He and the Smith family found inspiration in Mallory's writings, which they posthumously published as "Salt In My Soul: An Unfinished Life". Today, Jack continues his important work as a defense systems engineer working at a high level for the U.S. military, but he's still trying to figure out what it means to be the former-significant other of someone lost CF, and where he goes from here. "Salt In My Soul: An Unfinished Life" is available on Amazon (https://nam03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FSalt-My-Soul-Unfinished-Life%2Fdp%2F1984855425&data=01%7C01%7Cjalpaio%40cff.org%7C2c1bcaffa1584ed787e508d6e3a831e1%7Cf581bf53aa87446b9a4fd85c3510df63%7C0&sdata=0WxzTLyKuU1D2Ldc4OXeCHCsepLW2URMu%2FWJQjgjRp8%3D&reserved=0) and other places books are sold.
