*PRC- Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation
 
 
 
The overall goal of this VISTA project is to increase access to healthcare resources by providing financial aid for medical services to people living with cystic fibrosis in the state of Montana. Cystic fibrosis affects every aspect of a patient’s life. They have to schedule their entire day around a routine of treatments, getting enough sleep, eating enough calories, and getting enough exercise. There are many expenses incurred for those who live with CF that do not get covered by insurance. This VISTA project will move people living with cystic fibrosis in Montana out of poverty by increasing outreach for financial support programs resulting in families being able to save on medical expenses not covered by insurance. Located in Bozeman, MT, the VISTA serving at this site will have excellent access to hiking, skiing, fishing, and a short drive to Yellowstone National Park.

The VISTA will conduct a needs assessment of the cystic fibrosis community in Montana and assess if CBDF has programs to meet those needs.
