Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease affecting 30,000 children and adults in the United States. CF causes the body to produce a thick, sticky mucus which impairs digestion and leads to life-threatening lung infections. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was established in 1955 to assure the development of the means to cure and control cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease. With your help, we can give the children and adults with CF the quality of life and the future they deserve. For more information, visit or call 216-475-2873.
