Ep 60 The War for the Roses: : Making "that Geezer" Get 65 Rose Tattoos for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Don Kreis and Rose Keller

Don Kreis and his daughter Rose Keller make a formidable team. Whether as guests on a podcast or fighting the battle against Cystic Fibrosis. This year when Don turned 65 he announced that he would get 65 rose tattoos on his body if he could raise $65,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. But when he called to tell his daughter Rose about his plan, Rose told him he wasn't thinking big enough. After all, if he was going to sell that kind of real estate on his body it should be worth a lot more to the foundation dedicated to working on a cure for Rose's genetic disorder than a mere $65,000. She challenged him to raise it to $650,000 and he accepted the challenge. In this episode, Don and Rose open up about the challenges of living with Cystic Fibrosis as a dad and a daughter with C.F. and their team effort to end it once and for all.

Dorothy Hansine Andersen (May 15, 1901 – March 3, 1963) was an American physician, pediatrician, and pathologist who first identified cystic fibrosis. She was the first to describe the disease, and name it.[1][2] In 1939, she was awarded the E. Mead Johnson Award for her identification of the disease. In 2002, she was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame.[3]
