at CFC International we think there is a very important role
for all of them. Some volunteers are quite sophisticated and
know more about fund raising than many professionals. Others

Often time children and young adults are terrific volunteers.
They are dedicated, enthusiastic, and willing to accept real

resource in helping CFC International achieves its mission.
Each year we set our goals higher, and in order to reach those
goals, we need you! And remember, when you give, you also truly

Research in the past year has uncovered
the genes that cause CFC Syndrome. The more awareness

will be made available to individuals who live with CFC Syndrome.
Just imagine what could happen if we worked together to increase
awareness and funding.
You may also be able to make a difference through in-kind giving.
