About The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections, damages the lungs and digestive organs, and limits the ability to breathe over time. CF affects 30,000 individuals nationwide and 70,000 individuals worldwide. In 1955 when the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation began, life expectancy of an individual with CF was below the age of 5. Today, people with CF have surpassed that age and are living into their 30’s, 40’s, and beyond, thanks to improvements in research and patient care. We are driven by a dream that one day, not one person will lose a life, child, sibling, parent or friend to cystic fibrosis, and we are determined to succeed.
