Cystic Fibrosis Donations
Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that cases persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe.
In people with CF, a defective gene cases a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients.
As a school we raised over $550 that will be donated to Cystic Fibrosis.
