Organization Support

There are many organizations that aim to help Cystic Fibrosis & Transplant Patients. Below is a list of the organizations we support in their mission:

Drag Race for a Cure

The Agustin Foundation Scholarship

The Agustin Foundation Scholarship is not a program that we have launched just yet, but in the future, if you are a Cystic Fibrosis Patient or even a family member, we would like to extend to you The Agustin Foundation Scholarship so that you can continue on with your education! Scholarships can range anywhere from $500 minimum to $1,500 or more.

the Arnold Program

Once the foundation is able to, we will 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. Arnold was (and is) a huge emotional support to Billy. Because of this, we would love to gift that same special relationship to others.

Funding Research

A large part of what The Agustin Foundation was created to do is fund research. Billy wanted this foundation to aid in the research of finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis and a cure for transplant rejection. Billy went to be home with our Heavenly Father on June 6, 2019 from silent rejection of his double lung transplant that he received in March of 2017. Our hope and prayer is that one day researchers will find a cure for both CF and rejection, just as he wished. Below is a list of organizations that we support and fund as they work to find a cure for CF and rejection:
The CF Foundation
John Hopkins Cystic Fibrosis Center
Cystic Fibrosis Research Inc.
Tampa General Hospital
