Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. Cystic fibrosis causes various effects on the body, but mainly affects the digestive system and lungs. For some individuals with advanced disease, transplantation may be the next step to help regain health. Currently, double-lung, heart-lung and liver transplants are the only definitive treatments for CF patients with progressive disease. Registering to be a donor might be the greatest gift you ever give to a CF patient. If you'd hope a live-saving transplant would be available for your friends and loved ones, please register today.
