May is CF Awareness Month

May 1, 2013

May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month! Across the country, volunteers and people with cystic fibrosis and their families will be spreading awareness about the disease and highlighting the progress the CF Foundation has made in the search for a cure.

You Can Help

Joining others in increasing awareness about CF is easy and fun. You can tweet, post on Facebook, advocate for someone you know who has CF or fundraise to support the Foundation’s mission. No amount of effort is too big or too small.

For more ideas about how you can get involved, visit the CF Awareness Toolkit, which offers tips, tools and language than can help you spread the word.

Learn more about:

  • Participating in Great Strides;
  • Becoming an advocate and contacting members of Congress on behalf of people with CF; and;
  • Talking about CF in your social networks (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.).

Take some time this month to educate someone about CF or encourage people in your community to get involved. It only takes a few minutes to make a difference.
