More information about Cystic Fibrosis…

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that causes mucus formation in the lungs and intestines that causes chronic lung infections and difficulty absorbing nutrients. Many areas of the body are affected but eventually fibrosis occurs in the liver, lungs and pancreas shortening the lives of those affected. Approximately 30 thousand Americans have CF, and 12 million are carriers of the disease. About 1000 new babies are born with CF each year.

IMG_1395We are so close to a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. There are currently a lot of treatments that help to limit clinical signs but those affected have to take dozens of pills each day and do several breathing treatments and lung therapy treatments every day just to maintain. CF patients often face daunting medical procedures and several traumatizing hospitalizations each year. It wouldn’t take much to find treatments that target the specific biological defects that cause CF through research and the ability to test new treatments. It just takes money to fund this research.
