For the first time, over 50 percent of those of us living with CF are over the age of 18. Our community has a wealth of knowledge and a great desire to connect, but little ability to interact face-to-face.
A group of adults with CF, with support from the CF Foundation, decided to create a space where adults in the community can connect, learn, share and inspire each other. On October 7 and 8, BreatheCon will be that space, a space that will revolve around life as an adult with CF — for adults with CF, designed and delivered by adults with CF.
Check out our program at cff.org/breathecon and read more about BreatheCon, then submit your email at the bottom of the page to get the link to register later this month.
