After the event at the Hotel Zaza, reader Stacy wrote to me in detail about the work the CFF is doing. Ninety cents of every dollar goes straight to research making it one of the most efficient nonprofits. And she added this fun fact:
“Doctors found several years ago that cf patients who were surfers has significantly healthier lungs. Through CFF funding they did a study and now patients regularly get a “surf session” aka a salt water saline mist they can inhale. The salt water from the ocean was keeping harmful bacteria out of the lining of their lungs!”
Yet another reason CA living is better for you! Just kidding.
Anyway, I wanted to draw your attention to this outstanding organization. I hope others (which I won’t point out) follow their lead in terms of funding.
