Michael Cassel has been selected as a recipient of the 2022 40 Under 40 Outstanding Young Professionals of South Florida Award by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation .
The Foundation's selection committee, which is comprised of well-known local attorneys and community leaders, selected 40 recipients of the award from the pool of nominees based upon demonstrated excellence in their respective fields and contributions to the community.
Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. A defective gene causes the body to produce abnormally thick, sticky mucus. This abnormal mucus leads to chronic and life-threatening lung infections and impairs digestion. Currently, there is no cure but the Foundation works tirelessly to try and change that.
Michael will be honored at an event later this year. More information will follow.
