Mission Statement

The CF Foundation’s mission is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lvies by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality specialized care.

Description

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. The Foundation funds more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support. Based in Bethesda, Md., the Foundation also supports and accredits a national care center network that has been recognized by the National Institutes of Health as a model of care for a chronic disease. The CF Foundation is a donor-supported nonprofit organization.

When the Foundation began in 1955, the media age of survival for a person living with CF was 5 years old. Today, people with CF are living into their 30s, 40s and beyond. More than 45 percent of all people with CF are age 18 or older. These improvements are attributed to the continued improvements in quality care and the fact that there are now more potential CF therapies in the pipeline than ever before, the majority of which were made possible because of the support of the CF Foundation.
