A Business to Charity Caring Campaign – BB&T Bank

Supporting You, as You Support Others:

BB&T’s Chesapeake Region proudly support The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  A large part of our mission is to make the communities in which we work a better place to live; the support we offer to The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation brings this to life.

Partnering with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, we share renewed hope and optimism to advance our shared mission to control and cure cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease.  Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive tract of approximately 30,000 children and young adults in the United States.   The average life expectancy for a person with CF is now 37, a remarkable improvement from when the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was first established in 1959.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is one of the most efficient voluntary health organizations of its kind.  More than 90 cents of every dollar raised by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, funds important scientific research and clinical programs in our mission to control and cure cystic fibrosis.  The foundation’s business model has yielded a “pipeline of promise” with more than 25 potential cystic fibrosis therapies in development.  Virtually every approved cystic fibrosis drug therapy available today was made possible because of the foundation’s support.
