About Us

The Living Breath Foundation was founded in 2008 by Chris and Lori Pappageorgas. Chris and Lori became involved in raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) community after both of their children were diagnosed with the disease. Witnessing first-hand the difficulties presented to individuals and families with CF, they recognized the need for financial assistance to combat the exorbitant everyday expenses caused by the disease.

Now in its twelveth year of existence, the Living Breath Foundation continues to provide services and programs to help CF patients in need. These programs include general financial aid grants, academic scholarships, hospital care-packages. Each grant is tailored to the individual requirements of that person. The Living Breath Foundation also donates a portion of its funding to CF research as they feel that this too is an important part of advancing the quality of life for Cystic Fibrosis patients.

CF Patients living in California and Arizona are eligible to apply for assistance. Please visit the financial aid page to read more about our assistance programs.


The Living Breath Foundation is a non-profit organization created to help those living with Cystic Fibrosis.

We award scholarships for qualifying individuals who wish to further their education beyond the high school level. We also assist individuals and families with the added expenses associated with having Cystic Fibrosis, which include the extensive costs of prescription medication and medical equipment. In certain situations we provide financial assistance for individuals who have prolonged or frequent absence from work.

In addition to providing financial assistance, The Living Breath Foundations plans on producing new and inventive ways to raise awareness about the disease and what it takes to live with the illness.
