A few facts about CF
CF is a genetic disease affecting approximately
30,000 children and young adults in the United States.

CF causes the body to produce an abnormally
thick, sticky mucus due to the faulty transport of
sodium and chloride (salt) within cells lining
organs such as the lungs and pancreas,
to their outer surfaces.
This abnormal mucus clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening infections.
The thick CF mucus also obstructs the pancreas,
preventing enzymes from reaching the intestines
to help break down and digest food.
