I first learned of CFRI in 1989, when my daughter Lucy was born and diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. My husband and I attended our first conference the following year and have been “regulars” ever since. The knowledge, as well as the comfort we have received over the years from CFRI’s annual conference, newsletter, Discovery Series, and countless other resources has allowed us to be informed advocates for our daughter. The cutting-edge research that CFRI funds annually has led to significant breakthroughs in the treatment of CF, and as a result benefits Lucy and the entire CF community by providing hope and bringing us closer to a cure. I served on the Board of Directors for six years and know first hand how dedicated the CFRI staff, volunteers, and researchers are to improving the lives of those living with cystic fibrosis. CFRI is a lifeline to everyone affected by CF!
