As mentioned in Michigan State Representative Jim Townsend‘s (D-Royal Oak) e-newsletter on June 20, 2011:
Local Organization Working to Increase Awareness of Cystic Fibrosis – The Bonnell Foundation, located in Royal Oak, is working to build relationships between parents who have children newly diagnosed with cystic fibrosis and longtime CF families. They are working with the media to help raise awareness.
Laura Bonnell, the mother of two teenage girls with CF, started the Foundation when she saw a need to connect parents of children with CF, and to better meet the needs of families, parents, and people living with the disease. Locally, parents are being connected through a mentoring program to help spread the hope and strength of people who live with CF every day.

The 2011-12 Portraits of Cystic Fibrosis calendars are now available. The black and white calendars feature the beautiful faces of people living with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), from toddlers to adulthood. The calendar made its debut in 2003 and continues to be a tribute to the people living with Cystic Fibrosis. Since its inception, $46,000 has been donated to fund CF research through the sale of the calendars. “The Portraits of Cystic Fibrosis calendar is dedicated to everyone with CF fighting to stay healthy. We all have to do our part to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis, so that one day no CF parent will experience the pain and loss of losing a child to this disease” says Laura Bonnell, Founder of The Bonnell Foundation: Living with Cystic Fibrosis.
