CF Awareness Month
May 1 - May 31
May is National Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month in the United States. Join thousands of others across the country to raise awareness of CF and what life is like with the disease that affects more than 30,000 people in the United States.
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) affects more than just the lungs. This genetic disease causes constant lung infections, but it also impacts other organs in the body where mucus builds up.
While there is still no cure for CF, advancements in treatment have made it possible for those with CF to live much longer than ever before. However, they live under the risk of infection and health problems due to CF. A cure is still needed.
Attend an event near you this month. Whether it’s a fundraiser or an informational clinic, every opportunity to help eliminate CF will increase the quality of life for those who born with it.
