What is Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. CF is passed down through the family and affects the cells that produce mucus, sweat and digestive juices. Normally, these secreted fluids are thin and slippery. But in CF, a defective gene causes the secreted liquids to be thick and slicky. These juices would normally act as a lubricant, but with Cystic Fibrosis the secretions plug up tubes, ducts and passageways, especially in the lungs and pancreas. In the 1950s, few children with CF lived to attend school. Now, with tremendous progress in understanding, research and treating CF, the length and quality of life have been vastly improved for those with the disease. Those living with CF need daily care but many people with CF can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and even beyond!
