Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common, life shortening genetic disorder in Caucasians. CF causes the body to produce abnormally thick and sticky mucus in several different parts of the body, most prominently in the lungs and other parts of the respiratory system. It also affects the pancreas, leading to serious digestive problems.

These 'Speaking from Experience' video clips offer first-hand accounts from adults living with CF. It was produced in partnership with Cystic Fibrosis Victoria.
