In Relentless Pursuit of a Cure

Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes long-lasting lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time.  Cystic Fibrosis affects people of every racial and ethnic group, and more than 30,000 children and adults in the United States alone are currently living with the disease. Data shows that individuals in developed nations born between 2015 and 2019 are predicted to live up to 46-years old (up more than 20 years since the 1980s). However, that prediction for those in developing countries can be as low as 15.  The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation works to fund and advance research that leads to better treatment and ultimately a cure. The foundation’s mission is to “provide all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives by funding research and drug development, partnering with the CF community, and advancing high-quality, specialized care.”
