From their website:
“Claire’s Place Foundation, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization providing support to children and families affected by cystic fibrosis (CF). Claire’s Place Foundation is named in honor of Claire Wineland, now a teenager, who has been living with CF her entire life. The foundation provides grants to families affected by CF, offering both emotional and financial support. A young co-author of bestseller “Every Breath I Take, Surviving and Thriving with Cystic Fibrosis,” Claire’s unique inspirational model for people living with this disease has led her to be a TEDx Speaker and receive multiple awards including Southbay Magazine’s “Top 10 South Bay Teen”, Looking Beyond LA’s “Soaring Spirit Award,” and a nominee of Los Angeles Business Journal’s “Nonprofit and Corporate Citizenship” awards. She has been featured in Ladies’ Home Journal and seen on the Hallmark Channel and ABC’s “Everyday Health.” Claire’s Place Foundation is a way for Claire to give back with hope, strength, and joy and make meaning of what she has had to go through.”
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. They fund more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a nonprofit donor-supported organization dedicated to attacking cystic fibrosis from every angle. Their focus is to support the development of new drugs to fight the disease, improve the quality of life for those with CF, and ultimately to find a cure.
