At the center of caring is love, a force that drives us to go above and beyond for others. Caregivers demonstrate this daily with their compassion, dedication, and hours spent taking care of loved ones living with cystic fibrosis (CF). Vertex's Love is in the Care program is a way to recognize this special part of the CF community. As a tribute to these caregivers who make so much possible, we want to say THANK YOU.
Recognize a caregiver
If you are living with CF and would like to recognize your caregiver, or if you know someone who cares for a loved one or loved ones with CF, please share what makes them so special and how they go the extra mile in the form below.
A caregiver may be a parent, spouse, other relative, significant other, or a friend. This program is designed to recognize those who provide care outside of the medical care team, so nominations for healthcare professionals (e.g. doctors and nurses) will not be selected.
If selected, your submission may be featured on the Love is in the Care website, Vertex website, Vertex social media channels, and/or other media to inspire the greater CF community. You will also receive a Love is in the Care thank you card you can personalize and give to the caregiver as a token of recognition.
Check out our FAQs for helpful information about the program.

above and beyond to strengthen and make things possible for his or her loved one living with CF.
If selected for the program, your submission may be featured on our website and/or social media to be shared with the greater CF community.
You will also receive a Love is in the Care thank you card you can personalize and give to your caregiver as a token of recognition.

Who is eligible to be recognized?
All caregivers such as a parent, spouse, significant other, or friend who provides support for a loved one living with CF are
eligible to be recognized in this program. But please note, since the program is designed to recognize those who provide care for CF
patients outside of their medical care team, healthcare professionals (for example, doctors and nurses) are not eligible.
To submit a nomination, you must be age 18 or older. To be eligible for this program, you and the caregiver must also be legal residents of the United States.
How will I find out if my submission has been received?

and/or as part of a compilation of other selected submissions in other media.
Will I be notified before my submission is shared?
Yes, both you and the caregiver will be asked to provide consent before your submission is shared.
After reviewing the entry, if the submission is selected for the program, you will be notified and asked to provide
consent for the information provided in the nomination to be possibly featured on the Love is in the Care website, Vertex website, Vertex
social media channels, and/or other media.
Does the caregiver I write about need to care for a patient that is on a Vertex medicine?
