70,000 people worldwide have cystic fibrosis.
Half of those are children.
Emily is the daughter of our own Clay Snellings and granddaughter of our founder, John Snellings. She was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when she was 3 months old. We have a sense of purpose that compels us to do all that we can to make a difference in her life as well as the lives of others.
Your help will extend lives! We’re so close to finding a cure and giving patients their lives back. Now is the time to take action.
Cystic fibrosis is no longer a “childhood disease,” as there are just as many adults living with cystic fibrosis as there are children. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a nonprofit organization helping individuals with this genetic disease through funding research and providing support programs for patients and their families.
Nearly 90% of every dollar raised goes to vital programs supporting cystic fibrosis research, care, and education. The foundation funds more cystic fibrosis research than any other organization, and nearly every cystic fibrosis drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support.
