The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the leading organization committed to finding new therapies and ultimately a cure for CF, and to improving the lives of those with the disease.


As a nonprofit, donor-supported organization, the CF Foundation has made a tremendous difference in the lives of those with CF. This is an exciting time in cystic fibrosis clinical research. Not only are there several clinical trials of therapies to treat the underlying cause of CF, but there are also many trials to treat key symptoms of CF and improve quality of life. These include studies of antibiotics and anti-inflammatories to treat lung infections and inflammation, as well as treatments to improve nutrition and digestion.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world's leader in the search for a cure, funding promising research and working to provide access to quality, specialized care and treatments for people with CF. Nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of the Foundation's support.

I want to thank you for being a huge support to our mission and the Rocky Mountain Chapter's Annual Fund in 2021. I wish you and your family a happy holiday season.

Mike Turner
Executive Director
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation - Rocky Mountain Chapter


The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives by funding research and drug development, partnering with the CF community, and advancing high-quality, specialized care.

Background Statement

When the CF Foundation was established in 1955, people born with the disease weren't expected to live to attend elementary school. Today, because of our efforts, people with CF are living into their 40s, 50s, and beyond.

Since 1955, the CF Foundation has added decades to the lives of people with the disease. These gains are the direct result of advances in treatment and care made possible through our innovative business model, called venture philanthropy.

By raising funds needed to fuel CF-specific drug development programs, we encourage pharmaceutical companies to invest in rare-disease research.

Each new breakthrough is a building block that brings us closer to our ultimate goal: a cure for all people with CF.
