"CF may be a part of you, but do not let it define you."
The experience of living with cystic fibrosis is markedly different today than it was decades ago. Thanks to the discovery of the CF gene, the availability of effective drug therapies and advances in technology, the 30,000 Americans who deal with the disease day in and day out are living longer and fuller lives. In a word, they are thriving.

Wind Sprint 15: Stretching Before Exercise

Episode 15 of the CF Wind Sprint series demonstrates a series of stretches to be done before exercising. Stretching gets the blood flowing and helps prevent injuries. Stretching also can help people with cystic fibrosis get in some breathing exercises before they lift weights, run or do other types of exercise.

This CF Wind Sprint is made possible by an unrestricted educational grant from Genentech to the Boomer Esiason Foundation.
