Join our team and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis – a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe.
With supporters like you by our side, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues to lead the way in the fight against CF, fueling extraordinary medical and scientific progress. The life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. Despite this progress, many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers who struggle every day in the face of this devasting disease.
We walk in Great Strides for them.
Atlas is our bubbly, smiley 1 year old son. We found out he had CF when I was still pregnant. It was definitely overwhelming and a shock to us. We didn't really know anything about the disease. Thankfully, though we used the time before he was born to research and find out how we can make sure he is taken care of. The CF Center in our area was and still is such a huge help. Atlas is such a sweet and loving boy, and we will continue to do everything to ensure he has the best life.
