Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition that affects a protein in the body. People who have Cystic Fibrosis have a faulty protein that affects the body’s cells, tissues, and the glands that make mucus and sweat. People who have cystic fibrosis make thick, sticky mucus that can build up and lead to blockages, damage, or infections in the affected organs. Inflammation also causes damage to organs such as the lungs and pancreas.
