Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening illness that affects the lungs and digestive systems of those born with it. There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis with over 1,000 different mutations. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe. While there is currently no cure for CF, there is HOPE!
This past year the life expectancy for CF patients rose to 47 years. This is not enough though! While, new treatments have been discovered to help in the treatment of the effects of CF by helping stop CF in its tracks, they do not work for everyone just yet. That's why it's so important for the CF Foundation to continue in the diligent work they've done over the years. In order for a these new medicines to reach everyone living with CF and eventually for a cure to be found, there needs to be funding.
