Volunteers Appreciated!

Cystic Fibrosis Research, Inc. is most appreciative of the dedicated efforts of our volunteers.

We are fortunate to have attorneys, web developers, editors/writers, and photographers as well as a diverse Board of Directors and motivated committee members across the country who volunteer their time and help our small staff operate effectively and efficiently. With this varied pool of talent, we continue to grow and meet the needs of the CF community.

CFRI’s volunteer involvement maximizes
the value of the financial support we receive
keeping our administrative costs low.

This means that we are able to fund more of the CF research and education initiatives that improve the quality of life for those with cystic fibrosis. We welcome your participation in our four-star organization. Check below for our current needs and see how you can get involved!

  • Assisting with mailings and on-line research

A Volunteer's Perspective

I have wonderful friends and a very supportive community to draw upon ever since I walked through the doors of CFRI as a volunteer over 20 years ago. What brought me here is my dear niece who has struggled with CF all her life. Happily, she is now 25 years old and is managing the ups and downs of CF as best as she can.

Through my association with CFRI, I've been able to offer information to my niece about CF while also serving on the Conference and Newsletter Committees through the years. My niece is the reason I came to CFRI as a volunteer and she is the reason I stay. CFRI's influence and effect on the lives of those of us who live with and around CF has been tremendous.
