Cystic Fibrosis is North America's number one genetic killer of children and young adults. It is a disease that affects the lungs, pancreas and digestive system, causing life-threatening infections and premature death.
More than 10 million Americans, or one in 30, are unknowing carriers of the CF gene. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world's leader in the search for a cure and funds more CF research than any other organization.
Nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of foundation support.
