                               RESOLUTION


 
Expressing the sense of the Senate that the President should designate 
 the week of October 12, 2003, through October 18, 2003, as ``National 
                   Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Week''.

Whereas cystic fibrosis, characterized by digestive disorders and chronic lung 
        infections, is a fatal lung disease;
Whereas cystic fibrosis is one of the most common fatal genetic diseases in the 
        United States and one for which there is no known cure;
Whereas more than 10,000,000 Americans are unknowing carriers of the cystic 
        fibrosis gene;
Whereas 1 out of every 3,500 babies born in the United States is born with 
        cystic fibrosis;
Whereas approximately 30,000 people in the United States, many of whom are 
        children, have cystic fibrosis;
Whereas the average life expectancy of an individual with cystic fibrosis is 33 
        years;
Whereas prompt, aggressive treatment of the symptoms of cystic fibrosis can 
        extend the lives of those who have this disease;
Whereas recent advances in cystic fibrosis research have produced promising 
        leads in gene, protein, and drug therapies beneficial to persons 
        afflicted with the disease;
Whereas this innovative research is progressing faster and is being conducted 
        more aggressively than ever before, due in part to the establishment of 
        a model clinical trials network by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation; and
Whereas education of the public on cystic fibrosis, including the symptoms of 
        the disease, increases knowledge and understanding of cystic fibrosis 
        and promotes early diagnoses: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved,

SECTION 1. NATIONAL CYSTIC FIBROSIS AWARENESS.

    (a) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate that the 
President should designate the week of October 12, 2003, through 
October 18, 2003, as ``National Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Week''.
    (b) Proclamation.--The Senate requests the President to issue a 
proclamation--
            (1) designating the week of October 12, 2003 through 
        October 18, 2003, as ``National Cystic Fibrosis Awareness 
        Week''; and
            (2) calling on the people of the United States to observe 
        the week with appropriate ceremonies and activities.
    (c) Additional Action.--The Senate commits to increasing the 
quality of life for individuals with cystic fibrosis by promoting 
public knowledge and understanding in a manner that will result in 
earlier diagnoses, more fund-raising efforts for research, and 
increased levels of support for those with cystic fibrosis and their 
families.
