  • There are over two million people who carry the faulty gene that causes CF - around 1 in 25 of the population
  • There is currently no cure for cystic fibrosis but many treatments are available to manage it, including physiotherapy, exercise, medication and nutrition
  • Each week five babies are born with cystic fibrosis, and two people die
  • Only half of those living with cystic fibrosis will live past 41 years of age
