Welcome!

Welcome

Welcome to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Greater New York Chapter – Manhattan Office. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis (CF). We fund more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support.
Our mission is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the diesase the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care. 
To achieve our goals, we partner with supporters who share our common vision of a world without cystic fibrosis. Together, we raise awareness and funds by holding fundraising events throughout all five boroughs of New York City. We hope that you will share in our cause by joining an event committee; recruiting companies, families and friends to start Great Strides walk teams; signing up to bike in our Cycle for Life event; volunteering time at our office; helping organize a gala, or joining our Young Professional Leadership Committee. Your involvement will help us reach our goals. Please take a moment to visit our events calendar below.

Advocacy is just one more way you can make a difference for people with CF.

"Advocacy is so important to us as members of Congress because we want to hear from you...We want to know what it's like day to day, (the) lifestyle and problems you face because that is the kind of things that is going to motivate members of Congress to be involved too."
-Congressman Tim Murphy (R-PA)
