About Cystic Fibrosis: Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs, leads to life-threatening lung infections, obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food. In the 1950’s few children with Cystic Fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease now expect to live into their 30’s, 40’s and beyond. http://www.cff.org
