About Us


Judy Palma

Founder & President

Judy Palma is the mother of three adult children, two of whom have Cystic Fibrosis - daughter Jeanne, and her beloved late son Jeffrey. Judy has extensive experience in Pre and Post Lung and Heart Transplant care in connection with Cystic Fibrosis. She has been an active supporter and advocate for the CF Foundation for over 11 years. Today, Judy continues to support the Southern Nevada Chapter and serves as a Board Member. 


As a single parent caring for her son throughout the transplant process, Judy endured the challenges and financial burden upon her family. She is now eager to continue her son Jeffrey’s legacy by providing support to other patients and families facing transplant, and brings years of experience in areas such as Chiropractic Healthcare, Hospitality, and Sales.

Alexa Ciancimino

Co-Founder & Vice President

Alexa Ciancimino is a Cystic Fibrosis patient and advocate. In March 2019, Alexa and Jeffrey met at a Cystic Fibrosis charity gala where Jeffrey was the guest speaker. They instantly bonded over their similarities and lives with CF and became friends. In March 2020, their friendship grew into love, and they started dating. As Jeffrey’s condition started to decline, Alexa stood by him as his primary caretaker and fought by his side every step of the way.


Alexa is determined to carry on Jeffrey’s legacy and help other transplant patients and caregivers in need. She brings a background in Marketing, Social Media Management, and Communications to The Jeffrey Palma Foundation.
