Our board has one goal: finding a cure for cystic fibrosis and lengthening the lives of our children.
We believe the fastest route to a cure is research. In 2017, Cure CF, Inc. directed $110,000 of the money we raised to Norton Children’s Hospital Foundation, fulfilling part of our $300,000 pledge to the Kentuckiana Cystic Fibrosis and Respiratory Care Center. Additionally, in 2017, Cure CF sent a check for $150,000 to the national Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in Bethesda, Maryland, earmarked for research.
In our three years of existence, Cure CF, Inc. has increased our fundraising totals by 380%. Looking back over those three years, most of the early dollars went to the national CFF earmarked for research, but the board’s 2018 goals include showing more support for local care for CF, driving our commitment to the Kentuckiana Cystic Fibrosis and Respiratory Care Center.
