Ray initially learned about CF when he started dating his wife, Rebecca. Seeing her battle firsthand inspired him to get involved locally by starting a Cycle for Life team, supporting various committees and events, and speaking at multiple events. He also became involved at the national level supporting the Post-Transplant Guidelines Committee, virtual events, and the CF Community Blog Editorial Board. He was named Milwaukee’s Finest, a leadership board member at the Wisconsin Chapter, and later at the Greater Cincinnati Chapter as their Tomorrow’s Leaders Chair. He is honored and excited to be serving as a co-chair with Julie for the 2022 Volunteer Leadership Conference.
