    Thank you for posting this! My baby cousins have CF.

    Thank you so much for posting this…My daughter died 2 years ago. She was only 6 years old, and she had CF.

    The publicity you give this wonderful foundation…which actually devotes 95% of all money collected to research, one of the highest percentages of any other non profit organization, will truly make a difference in lives.

    The money you donate helps develop new medication and treatments. Also, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is privately funded…and can devote much needed research to gene therapy, which is the best chance for treatment and eventually a cure.

    Thank you again….

    another thank you for posting this perez! my 7 year old nephew has CF & it's a significant, life-altering challenge for him & his family every day. he's alive and well now & we hope he will be for another 60-70 years, but his best chance of living a long healthy life is through new therapies and treatments discovered through the science that the CFF funds.

    Thanks so much Perez! I'm in a sorority, Delta Phi Epsilon, and this is one of our major philanthropies! Such a worth while cause :)

    WOW Perez, You're on a higher pedestal now. A worthwhile cause indeed. My husband has CF. Thank you for supporting the CFF.

    Thanks Perez!! I am 26 and was born with CF. I was able to have a double lung transplant a year ago. Its people like you that help us live longer due to your support and sharing the awareness. If it weren't for the awareness, a lot of us would not be here today. I would not have seen my wedding day a month ago. I lost many friends to CF growing up that didn't have the opportunities that a lot of us have today. Lots of love from your hometown, Miami!

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for posting this. As a 22 yr. old living with the disease, I know how little media this illness gets. Most people still don't know what it is. Thank u again

    Thank you so much for posting this. One of the people I love most has CF and we all need to work for a cure! Thanks Perez!



  11. 11

    Thanks for being amazing Perez. Love you.

    FIGHT CF!!



  12. 12

    Thank you Perez! It's hard living with an "orphan disease" that doesn't get government funding because it only affects THIRTY THOUSAND people in the United States. We depend on the CFF to fund new therapies to keep us breathing and alive. I'm 32 with CF.



  13. 13

    Thanks for doing this Perez, I've just lost a friend to CF…



  14. 14

    Wow, Perez, thanks for posting this! I am 45 and living with CF, but I lost a wonderful sister to the disease who was only 34. Any awareness of CF we can get create is definitely a good thing!



  15. 15

    Thank you Perez for bringing some much needed awareness Cystic Fibrosis and the CF Foundation. I have a 17 year old son with CF and had never even heard of this disease until then - We appreciate your support!



  16. 16

    Thanks, Perez!!! My cousin and two friends have CF and CFF is a great company!



  17. 17

    thank you soo much for this post. getting the info out there is such an important step for the cure!! thank you for helping! and thanks to everyone supporting us to find a cure!



  18. 18

    To the CF Foundation and Perez Hilton - thank you from the bottom of my heart for this collaboration to bring attention to CF. This disease receives very little funding and hardly any publicity - thank you so much.



  19. 19

    Perez, you are AWESOME! My husband is 29 and suffering with CF. It is rare that anyone tries to help with the CF Foundation. Thanks for posting this :)

    This is a 100 percent PREVENTABLE disease! A very simple test can tell if you are a carrier. People with the CF gene need to stop having children!



  21. 21

    you are awesome for posting this!!! I'm 25 years old and I was diagnosed with CF at 3 months…so far I've beaten 4 life expectancies, and I'm still going strong. thanks to people like you who care enough to get the word out about this horribly underrated disease, more is being done to help others achieve my same goals. thanks so much.

    Re: -V- – that's a pretty ballsy thing to insinuate. number one, more than TEN MILLION people in the United States alone are symptomless carriers of the CF gene. that's a WHOLE lot of people to what, stay away from?? and not only that, but even if two CF carriers reproduce, there is only a 25% chance that the child will have CF. number two, and more importantly, this disease is so little-known that whether or not you have a microscopic gene in you that results in it isn't at the top of the charts for things you make sure to learn about each other. your idea is a lot easier said than done.

    Thank you so much for posting this! My Mother will be 52 this year and is living with Cystic Fibrosis. I lost my Aunt at the young age of 29, 11 yrs ago. I myself recently found out that I am a carrier for CF. There is so much to be learned about CF that CFF can teach and discover with help from everyone.
