Child Life Society was created to help make life for children with cystic fibrosis (CF) as normal and enjoyable as possible.
CF is a degenerative, genetic disease that afflicts families with a far greater frequency that most other ethnic groups. There is no present cure.
Sadly, their days and nights are filled with wheezing, coughing, fatigue, and the constant burden of doctor appointments, respiration therapy, medication, and frequent hospitalizations.Children with CF suffer lifelong breathing difficulties due to the constant, heavy buildup of thick mucus in their lungs. Children with CF are also dangerously prone to life-threatening infections in their lungs.
Child Life Society provides desperately needed funds to pay for medical equipment, vitamins and food supplements, home care assistance, therapeutic respite, and emotional support.
Child Life Society also subsidizes trips for CF victims to Arizona. Here, the warm, dry air helps ease their breathing difficulties and allows the children to feel healthy and normal, if at least for a week or two.
