Breathe Easy Scholarship Fund in honor of
Joey Cabral

When my husband passed away of cystic fibrosis on January 22nd 2013, I made a promise that I would honor his name. I have, and I am still heavily involved in fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as well as my husband’s own account under National Transplant Assistance Fund. As I was thinking of what I can do to honor my amazing husband and it came to me.

On a daily basis my Joey struggled each and every day to take a deep breath, to run, and to carry his daughter to bed. I wanted to provide a family with a chronically ill child to “breathe easy”. This scholarship is very dear to my heart.

Easing the stress on a family with a chronically ill child by providing them with a year’s tuition is a great way to honor my husband. He was so giving and loving I know he would want me to take this road. I want to thank all of you for helping me, to help a family “breathe easy” and lessen their hardship; it means the world to me.

God Bless Melinda Cabral
