To finish off the school year here at NMS, students and staff members participated in a walk to support Cystic Fibrosis, organized by Mr. Toth, Mr. Raschilla, and Mrs. Falleti. The walk was a great way to support this cause. Mrs. Falleti her self has Cystic Fibrosis and wasn’t supposed to live past the age of 8 years old. With the help of the community and support of the school we can help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. Cystic Fibrosis is also called 65 roses, the name 65 roses came from a four year old back in 1965 and hearing of his disease for the first time, pronounced cystic fibrosis as “65 Roses.” Today 65 roses is often used by young kids with the disease.¬† Cystic Fibrosis¬† is a very important cause to support.
