Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that causes a thick buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. This mucus clogs the airways, which traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage, and respiratory failure. Many people with CF do not benefit from existing therapies, either because their disease is too advanced or because their specific genetic mutations will not respond.
Virtually every approved CF drug therapy available now was made possible because of the Foundation and its supporters. While incredible advances have been made over the last 60 years, your help is needed now more than ever to continue the momentum of this life-saving research to control and cure CF.
