Team Murphy was created in 1998 when our family participated in
the first Annapolis Great Strides for CF Walk. Over the years, our team
has grown as family members and great friends like you have joined us
in our fund raising efforts. Our son, Timmy is now 27 years old and a full time employee of our local NFL team, the Baltimore Ravens! Tim started with the Ravens in 2019 as a stadium operations intern after graduating from East Carolina University in December of 2018. This past summer the franchise brought Tim on full time as Stadium Operation Coordinator. He has moved to Federal Hill, just a few minutes from the stadium and is enjoying working with the Raven's organization and stadium staff. We could not be more proud of him!
When Timmy was diagnosed at
19 months old we never could have imagined the amount of love and
support that would embrace our family. We did not know what our future
held in regard to his health but there was never any question that Timmy
and our family were not fighting this fight alone!
As a result of the generosity of donors like yourselves, tremendous progress has been made in drug development and therapies for CF patients. Tim is extremely fortunate to be eligible for the life changing drug, Trikafta and since starting this medication in 2021 has had ZERO need for hospitalization! Having said this, Timmy takes approximately 30 pills, nebulized breathing treatments and completes at least 30 minutes of respiratory therapy everyday… and that is just to maintain his good health. This is the reality for those living with CF and this is why we are so passionate about finding a cure!
Thank you for joining in our efforts and for supporting our 8TH ANNUAL Concert for a Cure! We are so excited to be back after Covid forced us to take a three year break. Together we can and will defeat this disease… We can each play a part in ADDING TOMORROWS!

To donate to Team Murphy
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs
and digestive system. An estimated 30,000 children and adults in
the United States (70,000 worldwide) have CF. In people with CF,
a defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce
unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to
life-threatening lung infections and obstructs the pancreas and stops
natural enzymes from helping the body break down food and absorb vital nutrients.
In the 1950s, few children with CF lived to attend elementary school. Since then, tremendous progress in understanding and treating CF has led to dramatic improvements in the length and quality of life for those with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond. (Source: Cystic Fibrosis Foundation)
