The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Orange County Chapter, is an active organization that is continually looking for ways to raise funds and awareness about cystic fibrosis. If you are interested in getting involved, whether as a volunteer or by participating in an event, there are plenty of opportunities available in Orange County.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a nonprofit donor-supported organization that is working toward finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. The organization also looks for ways to help people with cystic fibrosis lead more productive lives by funding research and drug development, ensuring access to high-quality care and promoting individualized treatments. Prior to the establishment of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, most children with the disease did not live past elementary school. Today, thanks in part to the Foundation’s aggressive investments in research and care, many live to their 30s and beyond.
