About

Cystic Fibrosis Northwest is a non-profit 501(c)(3) which devotes its time and financial resources to helping Western Washington families affected by cystic fibrosis, by providing funding for lung transplants and related costs. We strive to:

  • Establish and maintain a transparent and accountable organization devoted to fundraising
  • Provide opportunities for education and community involvement
  • Honor and support the families who donate the organs of their loved ones, as well as transplant recipients
Our History

Cystic Fibrosis Northwest, originally Return to Life, began as a group of friends and coworkers coming together to fight cystic fibrosis in South Puget Sound. When the son of a beloved member of the fire service was told he needed a lung transplant within months, the community came together and pledged to provide support for local families coping with the devastating effects of cystic fibrosis. You can learn more about our first campaign, Lungs for Jake, here.
