Cystic fibrosis is a life shortening genetic condition that slowly destroys the lungs and the digestive system. There are over 10,000 people living with cystic fibrosis in the UK. Around half will live past 41 years of age. Each week five babies are born with CF and two young people die from the condition.
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide national charity making a daily difference to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis, and those who care for them. We fund research to treat and one day beat cystic fibrosis, work to drive up standards of clinical care and offer support for everyone affected by cystic fibrosis. We desperately need to raise awareness and understanding of cystic fibrosis and the trusts work-and we need more money to carry out our important work in research, clinical care and support.
