Cystic fibrosis can be an isolating disease. However, there are so many ways to get involved and connect with others who share similar lived experiences — whether that’s through a virtual event, on social media, or at a local event at your chapter. No matter how you choose to find community, we are stronger together.
By sharing your experiences with cystic fibrosis, you can educate others about the realities of life with a chronic illness.
During CF Awareness Month, the community comes together to help others learn about the disease, share personal stories, and unite behind our mission: finding a cure for all people with CF.
It’s easy to get involved. Tell your CF story on social media using the hashtag #CFAwarenessMonth. You can share how you find support and connect with others in the CF community, how you experience daily life with CF, and so much more.
