2017 Scrapping for a Cure Retreat

Let's Fly Away to Neverland-

Second Star to the Right, Straight on to a Cure!

held at the Hilton Memphis

Friday April 7th - Saturday April 8th, 2017

We had an exciting weekend of scrapbooking fun

while raising over $10,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!!

Purpose: This was our 8th annual “Scrapping for a Cure” crop to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Several of us are directly affected by CF. Director, Rachael McGuire, has a daughter named Kaitlyn who was diagnosed with CF when she was 18 months old. Kaitlyn fights her daily battle with CF while Rachael’s family and friends are hoping for a cure.  Tara Smith, Teri Johnson, & Anna Steinke are Kaitlyn’s aunts. Co-event chairman, Jill Worley, lost her brother to CF in 1960 when little was known about the disease. With all this time that has passed, much more is known about the disease, but there still is NO cure for CF. Funding is needed to continue the search for a cure!
