Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States.

More than 400 persons in South Carolina are fighting cystic fibrosis on a daily basis. Fifty years ago, these patients would not have lived long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of CF Foundation supported research and care; patients are living to a median age of 38 and beyond.

For the first time in the history of the disease, the CF pipeline has therapies under development that target the root cause of cystic fibrosis. If successful, these therapies will add decades of life for those living with CF.
