What is Cystic Fibrosis?

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic, fatal disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of thirty thousand children and adults in the United States (70 thousand worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that:

• Clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections.
• Obstructs the pancreas, stopping the body's natural enzymes from breaking down and absorbing food.

Cystic Fibrosis Research Adds Quality Years

Since 1955, Cystic Fibrosis research has been funded by private donations through events such as the Best Burger in the Valley, and these events are driving force behind the pursuit of a cure. Thanks to the dedication and financial backing of their supporters -- patients, families and friends, clinicians, researchers, volunteers, individual donors, corporations and staff -- we are making a difference and have added 32 years to the life expectancy of CF patients in the past 50 years. The current median age of survival is 38 years old.
