Mission Statement

The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care. We will not rest until we find a cure for all people with cystic fibrosis.

Description

The Northeast Texas Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation welcomes you! Volunteers are the key to our success and the lifeblood of our organization. We have many opportunities for you to get involved. Your participation in any way will help us achieve our mission - finding a cure for all people with CF. A few decades ago, most people with CF didn't live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, people with the disease are graduating from high school and college, pursuing careers, getting married, and starting families of their own.

  • The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Today, many people with CF are living into their 30s, 40s, and beyond.
  • Nearly every CF drug currently available was made possible through Foundation support.
  • Once considered exclusively a childhood disease, approximately half of all people living with CF today are over the age of 18.
