Meet Julie Kopinksi, FC's Newest Pharmacist

Julie Kopinski is the newest addition to our team of pharmacists at Foundation Care.  She’s originally from St. Charles, Missouri and earned her Doctorate of Pharmacy at St. Louis College of Pharmacy.  In her spare time, Julie volunteers at an animal shelter and enjoys hiking with her dog, Chewy.

 CF 101: The Ultimate Go-To Guide for Cystic Fibrosis
Last year, Foundation Care partnered with the Blooming Rose Foundation to create CF 101: The Ultimate Go-To Guide for Cystic Fibrosis.  CF 101 takes an unbiased and all-encompassing look at CF.  The guide covers a wide range of topics, including medications, devices, non-profits, social media, scholarships, and patient assistance, among others.  CF 101 is currently being offered for FREE to CF Clinics and hospitals upon request.  A limited number of guides were printed, so make sure you request a copy today!  Or download a PDF version by clicking here! 


Thanks again for allowing Foundation Care to be your pharmacy!
10th Anniversary

Foundation Care is proud to announce it is celebrating its 10th year in business!  Since 2004, Foundation Care has been a pharmacy patients, physicians, families and friends can trust and rely on.
We would like to thank all the loyal customers of Foundation Care for their many years of patronage.  It is because of their support that we have been able to continue to provide patients nationwide with our products and services.  We are also fortunate to have such a kind, caring and committed staff.  They are the ones ensuring all of our patients are treated with the respect and urgency that they deserve.

Thank you for the past ten years.  Here’s to another ten!

Great Strides & Xtreme Hike

Springtime is officially upon us, which means it’s time to get outside and appreciate the sun!  And we can’t think of a better way to enjoy the fresh air than exercising while raising money for a cure.  This year, Foundation Care has formed teams for three Great Strides Walk sites within the St. Louis area.  

To find a Great Strides Walk near you, visit the CFF’s website.


We’ve also formed a team for the Gateway Chapter’s 2nd Annual Xtreme Hike event which hopes to raise over $200,000 for CF research this year!  The Foundation Care team plans to raise at least $10,000 between its four members, if not more!  To donate to the Foundation Care Xtreme Hike teams fundraising campaign, click here. 

Eight Additional Mutations Approved for the Use of KALYDECO

The USDA recently approved the use of Vertex Pharmaceuticals’ Kalydeco (the first drug approved to treat the underlying genetic defect that causes cystic fibrosis) for eight additional mutations.  Find out more by visiting our news page.


Have a wonderful day!
