About Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. A defective gene causes the body to produce abnormally thick, sticky mucus. This abnormal mucus leads to chronic and life-threatening lung infections and impairs digestion. Currently, there is no cure. Investing in the CF Foundation helps fund the landmark research that will, one day, make a tremendous difference in the lives of those with the disease.
