About Us

 

We Will ROCK CF (WWRCF) is a one-of-a-kind fundraising event that has raised almost $400,000 in 8 years and nearly $75,000 just in 2015.  All of the money raised goes to the cystic fibrosis foundation to support CF research.

Our 2016 theme is “Bet on a cure” and the evening will be spent playing blackjack, poker, roulette and more. We will again have wonderful food, drinks, gift baskets, and prizes for a crowd of more than 200 attendees. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). The primary issues with cystic fibrosis are that it clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and as well as obstructing the pancreas and stopping natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food. In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond. Since 1955, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been the driving force behind the pursuit of a cure. Thanks to the dedication and financial backing of our supporters–patients, families and friends, clinicians, researchers, volunteers, individual donors, corporations and staff, we are making a difference.

Cystic fibrosis research is definitely a team effort. Scientists across the world are working to understand and better combat this complex disease, with the hope that one or more of the many approaches to therapies will lead to a cure.
