Peggy Lillis Foundation for C. diff Education & Advocacy (Peggy Fund) is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI), advocating for improved testing, treatment, and prevention, and supporting those affected by this potentially life-threatening disease. The foundation is named for 56-year-old, Kindergarten teacher Peggy Lillis, who tragically lost her life to a community-acquired C. diff in April 2010.
Peggy Fund actively engages in advocacy at the national level, promoting policies that prioritize CDI prevention, appropriate antibiotic use, and infection control measures. Peggy Lillis Foundation aims to create a future where CDI is effectively diagnosed, treated, and prevented through programs like our Advocates Council and Peer Support Network. PLF also provides resources for C. diff care, nutrition guidance, and finding a physician.
