Support for CF Community Impacted by Hurricane Harvey

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, our hearts go out to the many people impacted by the storm and flooding, particularly those in our cystic fibrosis community.

In order to support those living with CF at this challenging time, the Foundation's free Compass program -- which helps people navigate insurance, financial, legal, and other issues they face -- continues to stand by and will be on call over the holiday weekend for those impacted by the storm.

A dedicated CF Foundation case manager is ready to work with those impacted, one-on-one. Compass is available to anyone with CF, their family, and their care team, regardless of income or insurance status, and is free and confidential. Specifically, Compass is helping people get emergency access to medications and medical devices that were left behind, lost, or damaged.

To contact Compass, call 844-COMPASS (844-266-7277) or email at

Our team is also working to get vital information and answers to common questions by connecting directly with relief organizations on the ground. In addition, the Foundation's clinical care team is in close communication with care centers throughout the region to help ensure continuation of care as those affected are relocated to other areas. 

We are working to identify ways to further support the community, and we will share more information with you next week.
