Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Awards Grants to Five Organizations Dedicated to Empowering the CF Community

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 25 luglio 2019

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation today announced the recipients of its fourth annual Impact Grants, which provide funding to people with cystic fibrosis (CF) who are leading unique projects in their communities to help and empower people with the disease and their families and loved ones. CF is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time, and ultimately causes premature death. Thanks to improvements in treatments and care, outcomes for people with CF have improved dramatically, but managing the disease requires a complex and demanding care regimen and significant social support.
Advances in treatments and care led by the CF Foundation have added decades of life and unprecedented hope for the future for people living with CF. “Living with a chronic disease such as CF can be challenging, and people who experience those challenges have special insights about ways to connect and serve this community,” said Drucy Borowitz, M.D., vice president of Community Partnerships at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. “Adults living with CF and their family members and friends are bringing new energy and perspective to help people with CF in their day-to-day life. The Foundation is honored to provide resources through the Impact Grant program to support bringing their visions to life.”
