Due to the risks of cross infection exclusively among people with Cystic Fibrosis, we ask that nobody else with CF attend this event. We sincerely regret that we have to make this request, but it is in accordance with the infection control guidelines put forth by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We eagerly look forward to the day that people with CF can be together without risk of cross infection. Until then, we thank you for your understanding in respecting this request.
