Basic needs for the family of a child with Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. While advances in treatments over the last few decades allows patients to live longer than before, there is still no cure and many young patients’ lives are cut short.
Cystic Fibrosis requires daily treatments and frequent hospitalizations. It can be expensive for parents who want to stay with their children to spend time away from work and stay in a hotel or other temporary lodging. Claire’s Place Foundation’s Extended Hospital Stay Grant Program addresses the financial stress families face when children with cystic fibrosis have extended stays in the hospital, often in a city far from home. Your gift helps families with paying their mortgage, rent, utilities, or any other basic necessities while their child is in the hospital.
