Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common life threatening genetic disorder affecting New Zealanders. CF affects a number of organs in the body (especially the lungs and pancreas) by clogging them with thick, sticky mucus. In the lungs this causes shortness of breath, a chronic cough and repeated chest infections. At present there is no cure for CF.
Here at CFNZ we strive to improve the quality of life for people with CF and their families. We have a number of programmes that are set in place to be able to help each and every person with CF no matter where they live in NZ. We thank you so much for your support, every little bit counts when we are fighting the everyday effects of Cystic Fibrosis in our community.
