  • Tell Your Senators: Pass the Newborn Screening Saves Lives Reauthorization Act

    Right now your senators are considering legislation to reauthorize the Newborn Screening Saves Lives Act. This bill extends and expands existing legislation to assist states in implementing newborn screening programs, support parent and provider newborn screening education, and ensuring laboratory quality and surveillance. Early detection and treatment of cystic fibrosis is critical to a patient's quality of life. Let your senators know how important newborn screening is to you.

  • Safeguard access to CF care

    Your state lawmakers are considering how much to budget for programs that help many people with cystic fibrosis pay for their medications, visit care centers, afford hospital care and more. It is up to us to explain how essential these programs are for people with CF.

  • Tell Congress: protect our progress toward a cure for CF

    Federal medical research and drug review programs are critical to the fight against CF. Tell Washington: don't jeopardize our efforts to add tomorrows. Protect these important programs today.
