Cystic Fibrosis Trust
They are working towards a brighter future for everyone with cystic fibrosis by funding cutting-edge research, driving up standards of care and supporting people with the condition and their loved ones every step of the way.
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is fighting for a life unlimited for everyone affected by cystic fibrosis. Their mission is to create a world where being born with CF no longer carries a death sentence, when everyone living with the condition will be able to look forward to a long, healthy life.
With advances in care, treatment and understanding of the condition, people with cystic fibrosis are living longer and healthier lives than ever before. It is no longer a barrier to working, travelling or having a family – but it does create obstacles. Everyone with cystic fibrosis is unique and will have their own relationship with CF and their own range of symptoms. Some people have relatively stable lung function, while others struggle with this the most. Some require enzymes with every meal to help digest their food, while others don't need any at all. It’s hard to paint a picture that illustrates the 10,000 different stories, but you can find out more about broad themes below.See more
