What is Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a rare, genetic disorder that is passed from parents to children. It is caused by inheriting two defective (or abnormal) copies of the gene cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) protein. This mutation makes mucus and other secretions much thicker and difficult to clear, which creates blockage and obstructs vital organs. More than 30,000 people in the U.S. are living with cystic fibrosis and around 1,000 people are diagnosed with CF each year.
