I know that when I donate my money to the CFF my money is being put to work. The CFF is leading the way in how they manage their funding and how they are funding research. I do not know of any other disease that is making the strides the CFF is in improving quality of life and getting closer to a cure. I also know that I am also helping patients through the patient assistance program so that they can get help to keep up with their medications. I love the variety of fundraising events that they have throughout the year. There is something for everyone and so many ways for people to get involved. On a more personal level as someone who has a child battling this horrible disease I pay close attention to the CFF and how it is being managed. These people constantly go above & beyond for our loved ones. The life expectancy just keeps climbing and the quality of life is getting better. We have great reason to plan for a future because of the work done by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
