Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a complex, genetic disease that affects about 30,000 children and young adults in the United States. In addition, approximately 10 million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective gene. Today, thanks to research and care supported by the Foundation, many people with CF are living into their 30s, 40s and be-yond. CF is caused by a defective gene that causes the body to produce abnormally thick, sticky mucus. This mucus can impair digestion and clog the airways, leading to fatal lung infections.
About the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation:
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. The Foundation funds more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support. Based in Bethesda, Md., the Foundation also supports and accredits a national care center network that has been recognized by the National Institutes of Health as a model of care for a chronic disease.
