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 efficient and 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.

The most recent example of the success of the CF  Foundation’s model is Kalydeco, the first drug to treat the  genetic defect causing CF. While Kalydeco is a breakthrough in  CF research and development, this drug works for only 4% of our CF population. Real progress toward a cure has been made, but the lives  of young people with CF are still cut far too short. We  urgently need the public’s continued support to fulfill our mission and help extend the lives of those with the disease.

Our work is not yet done. Help us to assure that all people with CF live a long and healthy life.
