What is CF?
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a hereditary disease that affects lungs and digestion. The disease impacts over 30,000 children and adults in the United States.
CF occurs in a child when both parents have a defective gene. It is estimated that more than 10 million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. In patients with CF, the defective gene causes the body to produce an abnormally thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs. These secretions produce life-threatening lung infections and obstruct the pancreas, preventing digestive enzymes from reaching the intestines to help break down and absorb food.
Thanks to extraordinary medical and scientific progress, the life expectancy of someone born with CF has doubled in the last 30 years. With your donation, research for life saving treatments can continue!
