I nominate the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). The mission of CFF is to assure the development of the means to cure and control cystic fibrosis (CF) and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease. The CFF creates and funds innovative research and provides specialized medical care to improve the length and quality of life for people with CF. The funded research covers the entire spectrum ranging from laboratory research through clinical trails to the patient. CFF was picked as one of the nation's "Best in the Business" by 'Smart Money', the magazine for the 'Wall Street Journel'. Thanks to the efficient use of funds and the land mark research made possible by the CFF, the life expectancy of patients with this genetic disease has nearly doubled to 32 years.
