Join us for a night of drinks, dinner and dancing as we celebrate the many advancements in cystic fibrosis research. We hope to see you there!
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has fueled dramatic improvements in cystic fibrosis research and care. Because of the Foundation and supporters like you, people with CF are living longer and healthier lives. Just this year, 3 amazing milestones were announced.
- The median age of survival is 53 years old. When Annie and Katie were diagnosed in 2006, the median age of survival was just 32 years old. This means that life expectancy has increased 1 year, every year - for the past 20 years indicating tremendous progress.
- For years, it has been reported that there were approximately 30,000 individuals in the US living with CF, and 70,000 worldwide. Because of recent therapies, there are now approximately 40,000 individuals living with CF, and 105,000 worldwide.
- Just a few years ago, CFF announced that 50% of CF patients were over the age of 18, no longer making it a childhood disease. This was a milestone that we were shouting from the rooftops. Now, it’s reported that 60% of people living with CF are living into adulthood.
Thank you in advance for your support of our family. You are truly helping to make a difference not only in Annie and Katie's lives, but all those living with CF.
