The Agustin Foundation was created to provide financial aid to any and all Cystic Fibrosis patients, transplant patients, and their families with any daily/monthly bills that may incur as part of their daily lives, treatment, clinics, hospital stays, or any medical bill(s) that they might have. In the future, The Agustin Foundation will also provide scholarships to any CF or transplant patient who would like to continue their education. Once the foundation is able to, we will also introduce the Arnold Program to gift CF and transplant patients with a dog of their choosing, as long as they are medically allowed to, in honor of the special relationship Billy had with his English Bulldog, Arnold.
A large part of what The Agustin Foundation is being created to do is to fund research for a cure for CF and rejection for transplant patients. Billy once saw that one of his CF friends received a new medication that would help her and he was overjoyed for her but said, “Babe. I want someone to find a cure for rejection. For her, this medicine is great because she still has her original lungs. But for me, it’s too late for this new medicine”. The day that Billy left this earth because of rejection was the worst day of my life, but I hope that through the founding of this foundation and the funding we will do in hopes of finding a cure for rejection, someone else won’t have to go through what Billy did.
Our Board of Directors are individuals and professionals who are dedicated to helping Cystic Fibrosis & Transplant patients & families.
