What is Cystic Fibrosis?

CF is the most common fatal genetic disease of children and young adults. It was first described as a separate disease in 1938 by Dr. Dorothy Andersen. CF primarily impacts the lungs and digestive systems by secreting a thick sticky mucus that over time causes chronic lung infections and/or digestive problems.
