CF Foundation Kicks Off Make Every Breath Count Campaign

July 29, 2011

Volunteers from all over the country will meet with their elected officials in their hometowns this summer as part of Make Every Breath Count, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s annual national advocacy campaign.

By participating in Make Every Breath Count, volunteers hope to build support in Congress for vital cystic fibrosis research and care.

"You have to stand up. You have to visit your congressman," says Rep. Edward Markey (D-MA), co-chair of the Congressional CF Caucus, emphasizing the importance of advocacy in the fight against CF.

Between now and Labor Day, Foundation volunteers plan to hold at least 75 meetings with representatives — one or more meeting in every state.

Join us for Make Every Breath Count and schedule a meeting with your representative in your hometown today.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is an accredited charity of the Better Business Bureau.
