    Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects approximately 30,000 young people in the United States, taking the lives of many of those afflicted before the age of 37. CF produces a thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs & digestive system, making breathing and digestion difficult & eventually impossible. The CF Foundation is consistently ranked by the Wall Street Journal’s Smart Money magazine as one of the nation’s “Best in the Business” for its exceptionally efficient use of fund-raising dollars. The Foundation is a donor-supported, nonprofit organization committed to finding therapies and ultimately a cure for cystic fibrosis, and to improving the lives of those with the disease.
