Programs: The CF Foundation currently funds more than two dozen clinical trials for CF to address the lung complications and dysfunction in people with CF and to correct the basic defect in the cells. The CF Foundation also supports educational programs and tools for care-givers of people with CF and accredits more than 115 specialized CF care centers around the country.

Mission:
The CF Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with CF by funding the research necessary to develop new treatments and one day, a cure. CF is a complex, genetic disease that affects about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. Today, the median age of survival for an individual with CF extends into the early 30s. CF is caused by a defective gene that causes the body to produce an abnormally thick, sticky mucus, which clogs the airways, leading to chronic lung infections.
