Congressman Clay Higgins Continues to Raise Awareness of Cystic Fibrosis, Attorney General Jeff Landry Offers Thanks

BATON ROUGE, LA – Following a State of the Union invitation from U.S. Representative Clay Higgins (R, LA-03) to Bella Reed, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry today thanked Higgins for his continued push to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis.

“Bella Reed is a charming, energetic, and vibrant young lady who makes Acadiana proud,” said General Landry. “Born with Cystic Fibrosis, Bella spends hours each day receiving medical treatments; yet, she does not allow her condition to restrict the joy she spreads to her peers and neighbors.”

“Like Bella, Congressman Higgins has been a leader for families dealing with the chronic illness of CF,” continued General Landry. “From drafting legislation to working with NHLBI’s Cystic Fibrosis division – Congressman Higgins has made research and treatment of people with CF a top priority.”

“I thank Congressman Higgins for his efforts to raise awareness of cystic fibrosis,” concluded General Landry. “And I support his efforts to help Bella and others with CF.”

Coming soon, the attorney's general office seeks to provide a mechanism by which to take online payments for collections.
