Adding tomorrows expresses the mission — and results — of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s steadfast efforts to extend the length and quality of life for people with cystic fibrosis (CF). CF presents daily challenges for approximately 30,000 Americans. But life with the disease is far different today than it was 50, 30, or even 10 years ago.
Perhaps the best evidence that many people with cystic fibrosis are living longer is the fact that more than 45 percent of the CF patient population is now age 18 or older.
Recently developed therapies and specialized care have enabled people with CF to gain greater control over their disease. So, children and adults are not only living longer, but also living a better quality of life.
