ABOUT CF AND THE CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION:
·Cystic fibrosis is a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that affects every organ in the body and makes breathing difficult. Some people with the disease say it’s like breathing through a narrow straw. In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria, leading to life-threatening lung infections. Sixty-five years ago, most children did not live long enough to attend elementary school, but thanks to Foundation-based research and care, people with CF are now living into their 40s.
·Founded in 1955, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world's leader in the search for a cure forcystic fibrosis. The Foundation was started by parents desperate to save their children’s lives. Their relentless and impassioned determination to prolong life has resulted in tremendous strides, and this year we celebrate 65 years of accelerating innovative research and drug development, as well as advancing care and advocacy. Virtually every approved cystic fibrosis drug therapy available now was made possible because of the Foundation and its supporters. Still, we believe no one should have to die at a young age. We will not rest until we have a cure for all people living with CF.
·There are now four FDA-approved therapies that treat the underlying cause of CF and more than 25 potential new medications in the CF research pipelines.
·Yet, we are not done. Not everyone can benefit from current therapies, so we are committed to exploring all science that has real potential to deliver a cure. We know that no pace is fast enough when you or your loved one are living with the challenges of CF. Advances in new gene-based technologies represent an unprecedented opportunity to end CF as we know it. This will take many years and sustained investment. That’s why community support remains vital.
·Together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found.
