About Cystic Fibrosis Canada
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a fatal inherited disorder, affecting mainly the lungs and the digestive system. In the lungs, where the effects of the disease are most devastating, CF causes severe respiratory problems. In the digestive tract, CF often results in extreme difficulty in digesting and absorbing adequate nutrients from food.
