Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. 

There are close to 40,000 children and adults living with cystic fibrosis in the United States (and an estimated 105,000 people have been diagnosed with CF across 94 countries), and CF can affect people of every racial and ethnic group. During the 1950s, a child with CF rarely lived long enough to attend elementary school. Today, many people with CF achieving their dreams of attending college, pursuing careers, getting married, and having kids.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation stands at the forefront of global efforts to find a cure for CF, dedicating support to a diverse array of research endeavors aimed at comprehensively addressing the disease.
