As many of you already know and for those who don’t, my name is, Frank Anthony Nocera. I’m an Executive Committee Board Member for Cleveland’s Finest, this years Auction Chair and a three time Honoree.
With what started my role in the Northern Ohio Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was the Great Strides 5k, eight years ago. Evolving into Tailgate, to Cleveland’s Finest and now to Finest Brewer’s Ball.
I’m a Lakewood Business Owner, Grant Elementary PTA Member, Legal Guardian and Uncle of Aleeah Williams; my 8 year old niece who was born with Cystic Fibrosis.
Aleeah is stronger than ever, being involved in Swimming Lessons at Lakewood High School and Vocal Lessons at Lakewood Music Academy. Aleeah has also been involved in Ballet, Piano Lessons and has a new passion for Skiing.
With daily breathing treatments alongside her daily regimen of daily medications and vitamins, Aleeah has astonished her Doctors at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital with her sure will and determination to surpass the “normal” statistics of those living with CF. At 8 years of age, Aleeah’s strength is as infectious as her smile, which is why when you meet her, you can’t help, but fall in love.
I’ll be your guidance and always your voice, until you’re able to find yours!
Come enjoy a magical evening and join us as we celebrate some of Cleveland’s Finest @ Red Space. 2400 Superior E., Cleveland, OH 44114 on Thursday, March 5th, 2020 from 6:30pm - 10:30pm.

Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now -- more than ever -- to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of Foundation-supported research and care, the median survival age of people with CF is about 40. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough. We continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit cff.org. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
