Charity fibrosis trust is working towards a brighter future for everyone with cystic fibrosis by funding cutting-edge research, driving up standards of care and supporting people with the condition and their loved ones every step of the way.
Cystic fibrosis is as varied as the people who have it – each individual’s genotype (genetic make-up) will dictate the symptoms that they experience and how much they will be affected by them. These include poor lung function, frequent and persistent lung infections and the inability to effectively digest food, particularly fats. Additional complications include CF-related diabetes, bone disease and infertility.
Cancer Research UK is a cancer research and awareness charity in the United Kingdom formed by the merger of The Cancer Research Campaign and the Imperial Cancer Research Fund. Its aim is to reduce the number of deaths from cancer. As the world’s largest independent cancer research charity it conducts research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
