Helping to find a cure

“The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the reason I’m alive,” says Emily Schaller in a recent Forbes magazine article praising the work the CF Foundation.

Emily was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis more than 24 years ago. At that time her parents were told that they could only hope that Emily would live to attend high school. Today, because of support from donors like you, Emily is able to be an active 26-year-old! She runs 25 miles a week, plays the drums in an all girl band and completes a 280-mile bike ride once a year.

Her ability to have an active life comes at a price. Emily has to work hard everyday to maintain her good health—she spends hours doing physical therapy and swallows 40 pills a day. In past years, she has spent weeks in the hospital because of CF flare-ups.

A big turning point in her health was her participation in a clinical trial. Emily has been using hypertonic saline for nearly 2 years and strongly believes that it is the reason she has been out of the hospital for 14 months!

These kinds of results are solely made possible through the generosity of people like you.
New therapies are being developed—some that could revolutionize the way we treat CF patients—but our job isn’t done until those treatments are fully developed and approved.

We need your help to continue funding this promising research! We’ve proven that your dollars are making a difference in those with cystic fibrosis! In the last three years we have been able to add 150,000 years of life to those with CF.

Please take a moment during this holiday season to make a donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Your generosity is needed now more than ever! On behalf of Emily and all of our CF families, thank you!
