Connection to CF
Parent of a Person with CF
Carl Riedy and his spouse, Judy, are parents of three married, adult children, including Chad, who was diagnosed with CF at 3 years old, when life expectancy was 12. Today, Chad is 41, married to Julie, the father of Liam and Tate and gainfully employed. Our journey has been an incredible one, full of fear, hope, challenges, progress and success.

Carl is currently engaged in multiple roles at the national and local levels. He is a member of the National Volunteer Leadership Council, serves on the National Outreach Committee and has been on the FamilyCon Planning Committee since its inception. He also served as the parent representative on the Advanced Lung Disease Guideline Committee. Carl is on the Metro DC Chapter Board, as both the Advocacy and Outreach Chair and is a member of the Fairfax Inova CF Adult Care Center Patient and Family Advisory Board.
