JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Friends and family of Melissa Boyett marched in her honor to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.

Melissa passed away on April 23, but lived a life full of joy and experienced more than most people ever will in her short 23 years.

Team "Marching for Melissa" met Saturday at the Orange Park Kennel Club. They walked to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis research.

You can donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in Melissa's name here.

Melissa's family has left her checking account open for friends and those touched by her life to contribute to the funeral costs and medical co-payments. Any extra funds will then be donated to Donate Life - Organ Donation Awareness.

Melissa was the recipient of two double lung transplants.

You can make checks payable to MELISSA BOYETT, at Wells Fargo Bank, #xxxx4674.
