Co-Founder/Board of Trustees
Mark Manginelli has been a part of the CF community since he and his brother were diagnosed in 1990. Since then, he and his family have been helping raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to help raise the life expectancy and get closer to finding a cure. Through the years, he realized that as important as those dollars are, they didn’t equate to help today. Story after story, it was shortly after hearing about a fellow CF family that helped fuel the idea that is now Breathe. They needed to choose between paying their mortgage or keep themselves alive and buy their monthly medications that insurance barely covered. Breathe will help fill that gap and be the financial, educational and emotional resource that families can turn to when life’s challenges become too hard to bear alone.
In his professional life, Mark is a Wealth Advisor and Vice President of Agency Development with The Fortis Agency in Holmdel, NJ. He and his team provide individuals, families, and businesses with financial strategies for wealth accumulation and protection while helping to minimize risk and lower future tax obligations. If he’s not playing competitive racquetball, you can find Mark on the golf course.
