Product Description

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common, life threatening genetic disorder in Caucasians. CF causes the body to produce abnormally thick and sticky mucus in several different parts of the body, most prominently in the lungs and other parts of the respiratory system. It also affects the pancreas, leading to serious digestive problems. Despite advances in diagnosis and treatment, there is no cure. 

Adolescence is a challenging time for those living with Cystic Fibrosis and their families. Treatment compliance, relationships, independence and 'who to tell' are among the many issues they deal with. This 'Speaking From Experience' features first hand accounts from adolescents who are dealing with these issues.

"What's the use of living for 70 years and it being a pretty ordinary 70 years when you could live for 30 and have 30 excellent years. I think it is really important to make the best out of the life you have." Joshua
