Cystic Fibrosis Week

Posted Aug 24 2008 10:43pm
This week is being devoted to blogging about Cystic Fibrosis (CF).

A few quick things to consider:

> CF is the most common , fatal, genetically-inherited disease among children and young adults in the US.

> About 30,000 people in the US have CF.

> The average life expectancy of a CFer born today is about 37 years . Although, many still never make it past infancy, and some will live well beyond 37.

> An additional ten million more people (about one in every 31 Americans) are carriers of the defective CF gene, but do not have the disease.

> There is no cure for Cystic Fibrosis, but there will be one day.
