Welcome. Families & Friends Supporting Cystic Fibrosis Care is a non-profit organization committed to improving the quality of life of people with cystic fibrosis (CF) while they await a cure.
“CF Care” was established to ensure that CF patients have access to the special programs they need in order to maintain their health and achieve their goals. Additionally, we fund unique educational initiatives and research endeavors. Cystic Fibrosis Care is comprised of parents, relatives and friends of patients who receive or have received their care at The Cystic Fibrosis Center, Lenox Hill, in New York City.
The Lenox Hill CF Center, which is now part of the world-renowned Northwell Health System, was first established in 1977 at St. Vincent’s Hospital. The entire CF research and clinical care team at St. Vincent’s that provided CF patients with outstanding care and access to cutting edge therapies for over 30 years has been embraced by Northwell Health, where they are now affiliated.
Our mission remains unchanged – to foster and support programs that encourage physical therapy and exercise in order to maximize CF patients’ physical fitness and vitality. CF Care is committed to the support of programs that enrich and improve the quality of CF patients’ lives. Through your generosity, we can ensure that young people with CF continue to receive the highest quality of comprehensive CF care.
