Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis 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 and protein also build 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 cystic fibrosis are due to lung disease. There is no cure.

Cystic Fibrosis Canada

Cystic Fibrosis Canada is a national charitable non-profit corporation established in 1960, and is one of the world’s top three charitable organizations committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. As an internationally-recognized leader in funding CF research, innovation, and clinical care, we invest more funding in life-saving CF research and care than any other non-governmental agency in Canada.

Since 1960, Cystic Fibrosis Canada has invested more than $150 million in leading research, innovation and care, resulting in one of the world’s highest survival rates for Canadians living with cystic fibrosis.
