Through the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s efforts, the life expectancy of people with cystic fibrosis has doubled in the past 30 years and research to find a cure is more promising than ever.
"I want the country that eliminated polio and mapped the human genome to lead a new era of medicine — one that delivers the right treatment at the right time. In some patients with cystic fibrosis, this approach has reversed a disease once thought unstoppable.”
- President Barack Obama, 2015 State of the Union Address
