About the Author: Emily Lyons
Emily Lyons is the founder of The Julia Lyons Foundation. She has been constantly inspired by the selfless, fearless spirit of her sister Julia – and by her courage and dignity – as she grappled with cystic fibrosis. Never one to watch from the sideline, Emily – a Toronto-based serial entrepreneur – has regularly forged partnerships with organizations that help those with cystic fibrosis. But now, with the Julia Lyons Foundation, Emily and her team aim to deepen their support of the cystic fibrosis community with direct financial aid, a much-needed mental health program for people with CF, and other resources.
