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.
Here's a little note from Jadzia - The Princess Warrior herself!
I am Jadzia. I am 9 years old. I like to sing, dance, and paint! Those are my favorite things to do. I also LOVE pancakes. I have a sister and one brother. I like that they play games with me during my CPT time. I also have two dogs and I love them both...ALOT.
I want to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation because, I want to find a cure. God made me and He is wonderful and He made the ocean and He made food to help us live. I hope that you will know about Jesus!
Here is a video when I was 4 years old that shows what a day in a life with CF looks like for me....

The things that are different now is that I take Trikafta and Hypertonic Saline daily and lots of other good supplements!
We walk in Great Strides for them.
