About the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease that causes life-threatening lung infections and premature death, and affects about 70,000 people worldwide. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. The Foundation has fueled dramatic improvements in research and care that have significantly changed the prognosis for people with CF. Kalydeco, FDA-approved in 2012, is one of the biggest breakthroughs for the Foundation because it is the first to address the underlying cause of CF. The science behind Kalydeco has opened exciting new doors to research and development that may eventually lead to a cure for all people living with CF. Based in Bethesda, Md., the Foundation also supports and accredits a national care center network that has been recognized by the National Institutes of Health as a model of care for a chronic disease. Whereas most children with CF once died before reaching elementary school age, now people with CF live into their 30’s and beyond.
