ABOUT THE CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION (CFF)
Despite tremendous progress, our work is not yet done. Our story will not be finished until we have achieved normal life spans and have a cure for 100% of people with CF. We need your support now as much as ever before to reach that goal.
1. THE CFF MISSION
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.
2. WHO WE ARE
The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is fueled by a dedicated group of scientists, caregivers, donors, volunteers and people with CF and their families who are united by a common goal: to find a cure for this devastating disease and help those with CF live longer, healthier lives.
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.
Watch people with CF and their family members talk about their dreams for CF.
3. WHAT WE DO
Our approach to curing cystic fibrosis and caring for those affected by the disease is three-fold.
We fund more innovative, groundbreaking CF research than any other organization in the world.
We have invested hundreds of millions of dollars into CF research and drug development. The results of these bold investments have been astonishing. Because of our efforts, people with cystic fibrosis are living longer, healthier lives and pursuing dreams they never before thought possible.

We provide expert care for people with CF through our nationwide network of accredited care centers. Cystic fibrosis is a complex disease that affects every person differently. That's why we're dedicated to helping people with CF get individualized care that's tailored to their unique needs.
We help people with cystic fibrosis and their families get the tools and support they need to lead healthy, productive lives, today. The incredible strides we're making in research and drug development mean nothing if people with CF don't have access to the care and therapies they need. We're working diligently to ensure all people with CF have access to the best medical, educational, and financial resources available.
