Mission Statement

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the leading organization committed to finding new therapies and ultimately a cure for CF, and to improving the lives of those with the disease.

Description

Virtually every approved CF drug therapy available today was made possible because of the Foundation's support. Nearly 90 percent of every dollar raised supports research, care and education. In the 1950's children born with CF seldom lived to attend kindergarten. Today thanks to wise investments by the Foundation in CF reseach and care the median predicted age of survival is almost 38 years old. The Foundation is making great strides towards finding a cure for this disease and imrpove the quality of life for those born with CF.
