The Take A Breather Foundation gives children living with Cystic Fibrosis and their family the opportunity to "take a breather" from the everyday emotional, financial and spiritual stresses caused by their disease. Creating smiles, laughter and magical memories is our goal. To be considered for a Wish, a patient must:

  • Have a physician diagnosis of cystic fibrosis
  • Be under the age of 18
  • Be without the financial means to afford for their wish

View a full list of our Program Guidelines to see if you, or someone you know, may be a potential candidate. Candidates who do not meet our standard criteria will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by our Wish Committee.

Take A Breather works closely with each family to arrange a unique wish experience. All candidates must be nominated by a health care professional who is a member of the patient’s CF Care Team.

Please have a member of their CF Care Team contact us and request a nomination form.
