Word of welcome

CF is short for Cystic Fibrosis.

Also known cystic fibrosis disease, fibrocystic disease, mucoviscidosis, mucoviscoidose, mucoviscoïdose, en fibrosis cystica.

In the Netherlands CF is one of the most common hereditary diseases with a limited life expectancy. One doesn’t just get CF, CF you don't just get. It is caused by a defective gene.

It is the hope of the Muco & Friends Foundation that scientists will eventually succeed in removing the defective gene to be replacing it with a good one.

There is still a long way to go for scientists to figure out how to get new genes into cel nuclei of CF patients.

Scientific research brings new insights and improved treatment methods, thus also improving the lifexpectancy of CF patients. By raising money, the Muco & Friends Foundation supports scientific research into the cause, treatment and cure of CF.

We are determined to beat CF! How about you?
