CF Week

Save the date for CF Week 2020, which will take place from 15-21 June. In the meantime, find out what happened during CF Week 2019!

Cystic fibrosis is a complex condition that affects thousands of people, like Jordy (whose story you can hear in our video), in a number of life-altering ways. But we’re working to ensure that everyone living with CF gets the best possible care, treatments and support so that they can live lives unlimited by their condition. Read on to find out how, or text YELLOW to 70500 to donate £5 today to support our work (terms and conditions apply).

Life-saving drugs

We’re empowering people like 24-year-old drag artist Jordy to access clinical trials, giving them hope and a role to play in changing the CF landscape. Hear from him about why he was born to be a star.

Day-to-day support

Hear from specially-trained advisors in Northern Ireland who are working on a Trust-funded scheme to offer specialist benefits support to people living with cystic fibrosis, and listen to Sangeeta and Becky from our information and support team answer your questions about benefits and grants.

Fantastic clinical care

Find out how we're supporting the highest standard of clinical care for people with cystic fibrosis by funding clinical fellows like Dr Caroline Elston. Take a look at our new map, which allows you to explore how many people with cystic fibrosis there are in different areas across the UK, and head over to our Instagram channel to hear Carlie talk about her experiences with her CF team in our Instagram Stories.

Ground-breaking research

Through SmartCareCF, we’re using health tech to help people like Sammie manage their health, detect bugs early and stay out of clinic. Hear from her about how monitoring her health has affected her life, and find out what's next for digital healthcare and how it could change the lives of people with CF everywhere.

Now you’ve found out about the work we’re doing to support people with cystic fibrosis, take a look at how you can help us to achieve it.
