On April 28, 2018 the CF Bridge of Hope sponsored a Family Appreciation Night at the Tully Health Center in Stamford, CT to celebrate the children afflicted with Cystic Fibrosis and their families, who’s devotion to their children’s recovery is unrivaled. The event brought together the many families from around the New York Metropolitan area who have worked with Dr. Sadeghi and the CF Bridge of Hope. Moreover, it gave recognition to the many additional individuals and organizations who help the CF Bridge of Hope in its mission to provide medicines and treatment to children with CF in the US and around the world.
The evening was filled with educational moments, but also one’s filled with deep emotion, as Sara, one of Dr’ Sadeghi’s patients, told a story of how CF has affected her life. The story recollected her moments of despair and of triumph, as she would alternatively give up and then again rebuild her emotional strength to fight her disease, and eventually learn to master the discipline needed to manage her condition. Soon there will be a cure for all forms of CF, but for now, patients like Sara are challenged to fight the disease, with help from great humanitarians like Dr. Sadeghi and the CF Bridge of Hope.
The event was also to recognize the many people and organizations who dedicate their time and effort, as well as contribute financially, to help the CF Bridge of Hope care for an increasing number of new and existing patients.
As the main benefactor, the CF Bridge of Hope recognized Mr. Ali Karbasy, of KAS Carpet for his generous contribution and continued sponsorship of the organization.

♦ Mrs. Margarita Esparrago ♦ Mrs. Jane Faynschmidt ♦ Mr. James Colligan ♦ Ms. Pam Klem and Mr. Tom Dubin ♦ Mr. Zia Mirjavadi ♦ Mr. Stephen Hudspeth ♦ Dr. Nasrin Afshar ♦ Ms. Firouzeh Javaheri ♦ Mr. Dimitry Skoybedo ♦ Ms. Marilyn Van Raalte ♦ Mrs. Nazanin Mahalati ♦ Ms. Rosa Pagan ♦ Dr. Sara Mohajer ♦ Ms. Sara Alma ♦ Dr. Dominique San Marco ♦ Mr. Charlie Reynolds ♦ Mr. and Mrs. Tim and Tara Cummins ♦ Ms. Sepideh Hekmat ♦ Mr. Moussavian ♦ Ms. Shannon White ♦ Ms. Khojasteh Harandi ♦ Mrs. Beth Gerritsen ♦ Dr. Sara Raissi ♦ Mr. Abizadeh ♦ Dr. Nancy Watson ♦ Ms. Trisha Bam ♦ Mrs. Ellena Barnum ♦ Ms. Grace Wong and Mr. Norbert Sluzewski
