Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) was established in 1955 to assure the development of the means to cure and control cystic fibrosis (CF) and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation supports and accredits more than 115 CF care centers nationwide, which provide high-quality, specialized care for those with CF. These centers, located at major teaching and community hospitals, offer comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for people with CF and their families. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease where a defective gene causes the body to produce an abnormally thick, sticky mucus that can clog the lungs, obstruct the pancreas and block the bile duct in the liver. http://www.cff.org/
