WHY: Imagine struggling for every breath you take – something most people don’t have to think twice  about. For most, breathing is a voluntary act, the simple process of inhaling and exhaling to produce  oxygen in the brain. For those with cystic fibrosis (CF), this simple act is a daily battle.

The CF Foundation is the world’s leader in the  search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. We take great  pride in being one of the most effective organizations of our kind, and are careful stewards of  every dollar raised in support of our mission. Through  our venture philanthropy model, we are able to invest in promising CF research to develop a robust pipeline of  potential therapies that target the disease from every angle.

Drug discovery and development programs have yielded drugs that have changed the course of cystic fibrosis. For the first time there are two FDA-approved therapies, Kalyedco and Orkambi, which treat not just the symptoms of the disease but the underlying genetic defect for a small percentage of the population.

We are optimistic about the road ahead, but it is a long one and the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. The public’s support makes the difference in how we fulfill our mission to help people with CF live longer, healthier lives, while we search for a cure.
