CF is a rare genetic disease found in about 30,000 people in the U.S.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a rare, progressive, genetic disease with no known cure. It is estimated there are more than 30,000 people living with cystic fibrosis in the United States. CF is complex and may impact many parts of the body, including the lungs, digestive system, pancreas, and liver. CF is often recognized as the condition causing persistent lung infections which limit a person’s ability to breathe over time.
The Rush Care Team Approach: Each person with CF has unique care needs—the types and severity of symptoms people with CF experience can differ widely from person to person. Our roles as care center team members is to support our patients and families in the treatment of their disease, enhance their physical and mental wellness, collaborate and co-produce care plans to focus on what is important to them and ensure that we work together to help them meet their goals for their lives outside of our clinic walls.
