More on The Living Breath Foundation

The Living Breath Foundation was founded in 2008 by Chris and Lori Pappageorgas. Chris and Lori became involved in raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) community after both of their children were diagnosed with the disease. Witnessing first hand the difficulties presented to individuals and families with CF, they recognized the need for financial assistance to combat the exorbitant every day expenses caused by the disease.

Now in it's sixth year of existence the Living Breath Foundation continues to multiple services and programs to help CF patients in need. These programs include general financial aid grants, academic scholarships, hospital care-packages, as well as helping particular individuals with very specific assistance needs. The Living Breath Foundation also periodically donates a portion of it's funds to CF research as they feel that this two is an important part in advancing the quality of life for Cystic Fibrosis patients.

CF Patients living in California and Arizona are eligible to apply for assistance. Please visit the financial aid page to read about more about our current assistance programs.
