WHAT IS CYSTIC FIBROSIS?
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a chronic, progressive and life-threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. Approximately 10 million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective gene responsible for the disease.
CF occurs in one of every 3,500 live births of all Americans and about 1,000 new cases of CF are diagnosed each year. CF significantly impairs respiratory and digestive functions, making the simple acts of eating and breathing a challenge. The median predicted age of survival is 37 years of age. There is
no cure for cystic fibrosis.
THE CF FOUNDATION IS RENOWNED
The Foundation’s business model is recognized by the National Institutes of Health and is the subject of two Harvard Business School case studies.
THE CF FOUNDATION IS INNOVATIVE
Forbes and USA Today have recognized the CF Foundation’s innovative approach to research. By offering milestone-driven research awards, the CF Foundation stimulates the development of new CF therapies that can have a profound impact on thousands of young lives.
THE CF FOUNDATION IS EFFECTIVE
The Foundation has received a coveted four-star rating for sound fiscal management from Charity Navigator, the largest charity evaluator in the United States, and is an accredited charity of the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance.
THE CF FOUNDATION IS A ROLE MODEL
The Foundation is emulated by nonprofits all over the country and continues each year to have groundbreaking progress in research and development.
THE CF FOUNDATION IS COMMITTED
Because of the work of the Foundation, the median age of a CF patient has doubled in the last 25 years, more than 45% of people with CF are 18 years or older, and all people with CF have a better chance for a longer life and improved health.
The Foundation continues to be a strong and focused organization: 2008 was a banner year in terms of scientific and medical progress, and we are in a solid position to confront the current economic challenges. As we look ahead, we are working more proactively and thinking more creatively than ever before.

Raising Funds, Awareness, and Glasses to Cure Cystic Fibrosis!
B. Cepacia Policy. Because of health risks to people with cystic fibrosis (CF), individuals with CF who have had a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia complex shall not attend events sponsored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This policy is necessary because B. cepacia is contagious to individuals with CF. B. cepacia can be transmitted through casual contact or close proximity with infected individuals. B. cepacia infection in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may result in rapid decline in lung function, possibly leading to death. While this policy should reduce the risk of B. cepacia cross infection, there still might still be some individuals with B. cepacia in attendance. B. cepacia is not a known health risk to individuals without CF who are otherwise healthy.The CF Foundation supports research to identify new treatments for B. cepacia. For alternative ways to participate and for more information regarding this policy, please contact the CF Foundation at (800) FIGHT-CF or visit www.cff.org. Consult your CF Foundation-accredited care center physician with medical questions.
