May is CF Awareness Month!
Roughly 30,000 children and adults in the United States have cystic fibrosis, and 1,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. This CF Awareness Month, we invite you to take action and spread the word about CF.
Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest national fundraising event. Each year, more than 125,000 people participate in hundreds of walks across the country to help fight CF.
Great Strides provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, co-workers and colleagues to come together in support of a worthy cause. Register today.
Our Advocacy Toolkit has lots of resources designed to help you effect change.
Review CF basics, from symptoms of CF to key statistics.
Get answers to FAQs such as "How is CF diagnosed?" and "What CF treatments or therapies are available?"
