Providing Support, Information and Encouragement Since 1990

Who We Are

We receive calls from people who want to know more about the United States Adult Cystic Fibrosis Association, Inc (USACFA). They think we are a large organization with a paid staff. We aren’t!

Incorporated in 1990, USACFA is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization which is operated entirely by adult volunteers who have cystic fibrosis (CF). USACFA is not affiliated with other CF organizations.

What We Do

The purpose of USACFA is to provide a source of information for CF adults regarding the basis, nature and progression of the disease, as well as the latest treatments and research to fight it.  It also offers a forum for CF adults to communicate with each other.

You can read excerpts from previous issues of the newsletter, covering such diverse topics as dating, organ transplants, and working and living with CF. Or check out the latest news involving the disease. Our many columnists provide insights on a wide variety of subjects related to CF.

Our readers deserve the best possible publication, and we’re working hard to provide that. A Focus topic for each issue is selected to appeal to a broad base of people with CF, and we’re always interested in new ideas or topics. Send your suggestions, or write an article on the subject of your choice, to cfroundtable@usacfa.org. If it interests you, we want to hear about it.
