Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common, life shortening 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.
These Speaking from Experience video clips offer first-hand accounts from people who have been recently diagnosed with CF. It was produced in partnership with Cystic Fibrosis Victoria.
