As part of CFRI’s CF Quality of Life Program, a Living Legacy of Peter Judge, CFRI will cover the cost per individual counseling session with your selected therapist. There is no charge to you! Thanks to Vertex, this funding is available through August, or when all funds have been expended, whichever comes first. Your selected therapist MUST contact CFRI prior to providing each subsidized session. For more information, click here or call CFRI at 650.404.9975. Made possible by Vertex.
