Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs, but also the pancreas, liver, kidneys, and intestine. Long-term issues include difficulty breathing and coughing up mucus as a result of frequent lung infections. Living with cystic fibrosis varies, as each person's body may experience udifferent symptoms and side effects. The typical life expectancy for someone with CF is mid-30s. There is no cure for CF, but medicines are improving the quality of life for CFers every year. We thank you for visiting our donation page and helping make CF stand for CURE FOUND.
Sicily is Singing for a Cure
Sicily is a 16 year old musician, dancer and singer/songwriter who loves to perform her own original music.
