Concerned Nebraskans for Cystic Fibrosis is working hard to improve the quality of life of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients and their families, promote public awareness, and support research for Cystic Fibrosis.
Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disorder that affects over 30,000 Americans. CF causes severe damage to the lungs and digestive system. People with CF inherit a defective gene that causes a buildup of thick mucus in the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. To date, there is no cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
Through fundraising, CNCF provides scholarships, grants and funds to promote higher education of CF patients and help with the high expenses families must incur due to treatments, doctor and hospital bills, and transplants.
We work to better the lives of those affected by Cystic Fibrosis and provide them with the support necessary to fight CF.
Organized 40 years ago, CNCF is a wholly volunteer organization. There is NO paid staff so all proceeds go directly to CF research or programs for CF patients and their families.
