Muriel’s Breath of Life is a non-profit initiative created by Muriel’s family and friends to honor the life and memory of Muriel Lagnese by helping Cystic Fibrosis patients and their families cover medical expenses and associated costs that are not covered by health insurance.
Funds raised by Muriel’s Breath of Life are administered by the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation and are intended for CF patients with special financial needs who are undergoing treatment at the Adult Cystic Fibrosis Care Program at UPMC’s Comprehensive Lung Center or the Antonio J. and Janet Palumbo Cystic Fibrosis Center at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
