Only about 30,000 people in the United States have Cystic Fibrosis disease. Picture this...breathing in a coffee straw for all your life.

It effects the lungs and digestive. Thick mucus builds up in the lungs,you could use all sorts of breathing treatments and even a vibrating vest. Sometimes it's not enough,and most children don't even live to see teenage years. But,since a lot of technology has changed,it has saved many lives.

How exactly it effects your digestive system. The body doesn't absorb nutrients like it should,that is why most C.F kids and adults,are skinny.

About 484 kids in the USA die from C.F each year.Some people can get lung transplants,and be so much healthier and get to see older years.So,they won't have to worry about being one of those 484.

GREAT STRIDES-If you go to door to door and raise money,It can make a huge difference on someone's life. Mail money,bring it to your local Cystic Fibrosis foundation.Or call for more information. A great thing to do,is the walkathons, they have several every year in a lot of states. It's a good idea to go.One penny could save a life... :)
