Cystic fibrosis (CF) 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 CF can affect people of every racial and ethnic group.  The mucus normally secreted by cells in the lung airways (breathing tubes), pancreatic ducts, gastrointestinal tract, and the reproductive system becomes thickened and blocked, causing frequent infections and loss of function in the affected organs.
