Posting from our website: "Just want to let anyone know that this foundation is outstanding. cf took my wife from my life last March. Because of this foundation, We were able to have Kari at home. Kari didnt like being at any hospital. I would have done anything to care for her at home. Because of the kindness and the assistance of this organization, Kari and I were able to be together. It not only help my brave sweetheart, it helped me. You see, if I wasnt able to have that quality depth of time with my wife and if she -- Kari--wasnt able to "help me" deal with "her" death. In all honesty, I most certainly would not be writing this message to you. If you are able and indeed understand the aspects of cf. If you are interested in helping an organization that is indeed above and beyond any other for individuals dealing with cf, please consider this foundation. Know that they are outstanding and really help those (( directly )) dealing with the day to day life with cf. Thank you. Kari D. Perry was 36 years old she is missed every day. Tim Perry

Hi, I noticed this site and sen the statement this site had placed. There was no reviews so I wanted to make a note. I was the one who wrote that statement. They not only helped us deal with something few could possibly grasp --as far as what we went through-- and gave us the ability to have her home with me at al times. You see, being in a hospital isn't what my Lady wanted. I'm so grateful for what they did for us and myself and our Son after we lost the love of her life. The CF foundation didn't do anything for us except to get the word out I guess. But this organaization, these wonderful people are indeed the real thing. The Billy Cook Foundation was formed after a wonderful stronge couple lost their Son Billy from cystic fibrosis. I had met him just once before he later passed away. He was indeed a remarkable person with a great way about him. he was loved by many. As so with Kari, she was simply a wonderful caring person who showed her love with me and our Son which was beyond any I have seen in my life. These wonderful people gave us a second chance so we could "live" a little while she was still alive. If you have ever been through a loss from illness, you would know what I mean by that. Anyway, thanks for reading and I don't ask for much, but please, if you are able in any way to help them help others ( many which are kids ) then please provide them with youre love. They will "pass it on" to those in need. Thank You Tim Perry

They did everything we needed. There was nothig more they could have done.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
Not enough people know what Cystic Fibrosis is and that is something we are all working on. There are about 30,000 people (mostly children) born with cf (cystic fibrosis) It is the worst way to come to ones end in life.
One thing I'd also say is that...
