State Representative Jim Ellison is a long time friend to the Bonnell Foundation and it’s founder, Laura Bonnell. Bonnell and Rep. Ellison met when she was a news reporter at WWJ and would call on Rep. Ellison for a comment, or she caught up with him on the road. Bonnell told Rep. Ellison about her Foundation, and the reason she started it was because her girls had the disease. Rep. Ellison (and his wife Jodie) were all in, right away. Each year Rep. Ellison introduces a resolution to make May CF Awareness month.
