Episode 30  - Bill Farnum - Casting 4 A Cure

Bill Farnum has been an avid fly fisherman as long as he can remember. He picked up his first fly rod on a trip to the Upper Sacramento River while attending college at UC Davis. Today he lives in Sherwood, Oregon with his wife Beth and their two kids, Ella and Alex. Their first daughter, Ella, has Rett syndrome, which led Bill to create Casting 4 A Cure – an organization dedicated to helping researchers find a cure for Rett Syndrome in the next 10 years, while helping support Rett families in the here and now. While addressing a serious, and deeply personal issue for Bill, their events manage to be a lot of fun, and raise some serious cash for the cause.
