Mia was diagnosed with CF as a newborn. She doesn't a life without medications, treatments and doctors. She handles it like a champ, she's independent, strong and nothing gets her down. CF is part of who Mia is but it doesn't define her. We want Mia to live a normal, happy childhood and with advancements in medicine a healthy long thriving adulthood as well. Each donation makes a difference. This community won't stop until CF stands for Cure Found.
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.
