Some facts about Cystic Fibrosis:

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common life threatening, recessive genetic condition affecting Australian children.

Approximately 3000 children and young adults have CF in Australia.

Approximately one in every 2,500 babies will be born with CF.

People with CF may need to have up to 2 hours intensive chest physiotherapy (to help break up the mucus in their lungs so they can breathe) and up to 40 enzyme tablets (to help their digestion) every day just to survive.

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that seriously affects breathing and digestion by clogging them with thick sticky mucus.

Every four days a child is born with CF. There are a million genetic carriers of CF in Australia.

Repeated infections and blockages can cause irreversible lung damage and death. Mucus can also cause problems in the pancreas preventing the release of enzymes needed for the digestion of food. This means that people with CF can have problems with nutrition.

CF is an inherited condition. For a child to be born with CF both parents must be genetic carriers for Cystic Fibrosis.  They do not have CF themselves.
