CPF Daughters of PF Program

Actress Rose McGowan (best known for her role in TV's Charmed) is the chairperson of this great new program.  The goal of this program is to vastly expand awareness of PF by holding awareness events and fundraisers across the nation so that we generate, via a grass-roots effort, a much broader national understanding of the implications of PF for everyone, and the impact the disease has on families. Funds raised by this program will go towards serving PF patients, advocating for patient and PF community needs, and funding of research. To join or learn more, Click here for more information
