Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common, fatal, genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. It is a multi-system disease that affects mainly the lungs and the digestive system. In the lungs, where the effects are most devastating, a build-up of thick mucus causes severe respiratory problems. Mucus also builds up in the digestive tract, making it difficult to digest and absorb nutrients from food. As improved therapies have helped to address the malnutrition issues, ultimately most deaths related to CF are due to lung disease. There is no cure. It is estimated that one in every 3,600 children born in Canada has CF and more than 4,300 Canadian children, adolescents and adults have CF.
Due to advancements being made in CF research and care, Canadians with CF are living longer than ever before; into their early 50s and beyond. Children born with CF in 1964 were not expected to survive long enough to attend kindergarten. The median age of survival for someone born with CF in 2019 is 54.3 years old. That is nearly one year of increased survival for every year since CF Canada’s inception. It is only because of generous, kind supporters like all of you that we are closer than ever to finding a cure or control for CF. However, we cannot stop fighting now.
