What is cystic fibrosis?

Cystic fibrosis is the most common, life-limiting genetic condition affecting Australians. Cystic fibrosis causes an abnormal build-up of thick and sticky mucus in the lungs, airways and digestive system. From birth, a person with cystic fibrosis undergoes constant
medical treatments and physiotherapy.
Cystic fibrosis is a life-long and complex disease. There is no cure.

Did you know?

1 in 25 Australians carry the recessive cystic fibrosis gene.

What do we do?

2020 is Cystic Fibrosis Queensland's diamond jubilee anniversary, 60 years of providing support, services and hope to those fighting cystic fibrosis.
Founded in 1960, Cystic Fibrosis Queensland is the peak community not for profit charity working with and for the increasing number of people living with cystic fibrosis who attend a Queensland Health clinic for treatment.
We advocate for the entire cystic
fibrosis community and seek to raise much needed awareness of this debilitating condition.
