Cystic fibrosis is a fatal genetic disorder that affects more than 30,000 Americans. Although CF is not yet curable, the situation is not hopeless. Every day since the CF gene was discovered in 1989, the pace of CF research has greatly accelerated. Today, nearly half of the CF population is over the age of 18. And thanks to advances in medicine and technology, these adults are enjoying an improved quality of life.
The Boomer Esiason Foundation has long-supported CFF’s research-based mission, and in doing so, has helped its team of doctors and researchers reach countless milestones.
