About the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis, a fatal genetic disease that causes life-threatening lung infections and premature death, and affects about 70,000 people worldwide. The Foundation has fueled dramatic improvements in research and care that have significantly changed the prognosis for people with CF. Where most children with CF once died before reaching elementary school, now people with CF live into their 30s and beyond. 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.
