The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will not rest until there is a cure for cystic fibrosis

A portion of the money raised by WITH ONE BREATH supports the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's "cure-finding" research program. Since inception, our organization has contributed more than half a million dollars to help bring game-changing treatments like Tobramycin, Pulmozyme, Cayston, Kalydeco, Orkambi and others to market. In the 1950's, a child with CF was not expected to live past kindergarten. Today, thanks to the dedication of the CF Foundation, people with CF are living into adulthood!

The University of MN CF Center leads the way in preventing and treating colon cancer in people with cystic fibrosis

Using the funding WITH ONE BREATH provides, Dr. Alexander Khoruts' lab has been working to: (1) implement colon cancer screening strategies into cystic fibrosis clinical practice at the University of MN, nationally, and internationally, and (2) understand the underlying biology of colon cancer in cystic fibrosis patients in order to develop better prevention strategies. Thus far, Dr. Khoruts has identified clear differences in the microbial composition and expression of genes in the lining of the colon in CF patients.
