Helping CF Children in Israel breath easier

Concerned Friends of Cystic Fibrosis (CFCF), established in April 1997, is a non-profit organization dedicated to meet the challenge of aiding as many CF children in Israel as possible. Over the years, with the help of our dedicated friends, we have financed medical equipment, medicines, exercise machines, air conditioners, bicycles, swimming lessons, physical therapy, family counseling, summer retreats, interest free loans, and subsidies for special IVF procedure (6 healthy children have been born so far!)

1. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease that produces abnormally thick mucous that blocks the glands and other areas in the body.

2. CFCF is run by a dedicated father and mother, and prides itself on very little overhead, allowing the funds to go directly to the CF families.

3. In Israel today there are over 400 children afflicted with Cystic Fibrosis.
