Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of about 30,000 children and adults living in the United States.
Real progress has been made, thanks to a focus on pioneering cystic fibrosis research and care. To continue to combat this rare disease, we need increase funding for lifesaving research and improve access to quality cystic fibrosis care and effective therapies.
Together, we can build hope and add tommorows for those with this disease.
Lisa is the mom of a cystic fibrosis child, Lena, age 2 1/2 . Lisa and her family work every day to educate people about cystic fibrosis.
