The Story

Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe. In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients.

To carry out its lifesaving mission, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation depends upon the generosity of people like you. The Foundation’s Partners in Progress Annual Fund enables you to give directly to our mission in support of CF research and specialized care, as well as greater access to assistance and patient engagement initiatives.

Please consider making a contribution – your support at any level is greatly appreciated.  Together we can continue to add tomorrows for those living with CF.

Hi Bean, it's been a long time. I wonder if you will remember that I was the Director of Development for a few years a while ago. I have always held CFF near to my heart and have fond memories of our work together. I would love to catch up over a cup of coffee. I moved to Norwark about a year and a half ago from Katonah due to the empty nest syndrome. Life is good and we are fortunate enough to be able to make this donation. Call or email me. I would love to see you. Kathy Garrett 917 331-5167 or
