Review for CYSTIC FIBROSIS RESEARCH INC, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 1961, I was the parent of eighteen month old twins and told they had a very serious and generally fatal disease. Naturally all I wanted was a cure for Cystic Fibrosis for them. Fortunately they continued to survive. In 1974 the name alone, Cystic Fibrosis Research, Inc. called me to join the newly formed volunteer group raising funds for CF researchers. That was how I could help!

Throughout thirty-eight years CFRI has continued its mission raising funds for peer reviewed CF research and education of the public, parents, and patients (who now may reach the median age of thirty-seven plus). Via newsletters, meetings, annual three day conferences with CF medical expert
speakers, .a summer retreat, devoted office staff and volunteers, CFRI keeps us up to date on all things pertaining to relevant issues and CF research.

And, YES, I'm proud to have been a member of Cystic Fibrosis Research Inc. all these years.

May the cure be found soon..

Sincerely,
Norma L. Stuckert

Review for CYSTIC FIBROSIS RESEARCH INC, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

From the creation of CFRI by a group of volunteer parents of cystic fibrosis children in 1975 to its present combination of volunteers, office staff, C.F. parents, patients and friends I have been proud to be a member.

Role:  Donor & My heartfelt goals to fund research to find a C.F. cure (my two children died due to C.F.) and to fund and foster education through CFRI's outreach programs-newsletters, meetings, conferences, camp, and to answer direct personal C.F. concerns for all thro.
