Quarterly visits to a CF Foundation-accredited care center are the foundation of your treatment plan. By partnering with your care team, you can also adjust your treatment plan as new therapies become available, or your needs change over time.
Daily CF treatments take time, patience and persistence. But the benefits of managing your treatment plan outweigh the drawbacks so that you can achieve more of your personal goals.
