Did you Know:

  • The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is leading the quest for new treatments and a cure. The government does not fund testing.

  • Ten million people in the U.S. – 1 in 30 – carry the defective CF gene.

  • CF is a life-threatening genetic disease that causes the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.

  • About 1,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.

  • Families in Southbury are living with CF.
