CF Survey: Test Your Knowledge!
Cystic fibrosis is relatively rare, and that means that many people don't know a whole lot about it. This can be frustrating to people with CF, especially when it feels like something that is your "normal" isn't even on someone else's radar. This Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month, we made this survey to see how much you know about CF (and perhaps help fill in the blanks)!
Let's get started!
Approximately how many people in the U.S. have CF?
True or False: CF is always diagnosed in childhood.
Which of these is NOT a symptom associated with CF?
How far away is it recommended for someone with CF to be from another person with CF?
Okay, now for a few more difficult questions...
CF is caused by a mutated gene. What is the name of this gene?
What is the most common gene mutation in people with CF?
What organ does CF affect?
