Cosa e' la fibrosi cistica ?
La fibrosi cistica (FC), o Mucoviscidosi e' una delle malattie ereditarie piu' frequenti della popolazione caucasica.
Un bambino su 2500-3000 nati e' colpito da questa affezione. La malattia e' dovuta alla produzione di muco particolarmente denso e viscoso da parte di molte ghiandole. Gli organi piu' interessati sono i polmoni e l'apparato gastroenterico.

Cystic Fibrosis is a life threatening childrens’ disease. It causes two major problems from birth, a very high susceptibility to bacterial infection of the lungs, and malfunctioning of the pancreas interfering with digestion and therefore growth.

The Billy Cook Foundation

The Billy Cook Foundation was established in the memory of our dear friend and son, William Ivor Cook, Jr. For almost 30 years, Billy battled against Cystic Fibrosis, the most common fatal disease among young children. He was on the University of Pennsylvania transplant list for a double lung transplant for 18 months. After living life fully, enjoying every day, and making many, many friends along the way, Billy passed away on January 14, 1999. Family and close friends came together on that day to form this Foundation. Our goals are to help CF patients and their families with the day-to-day expenses associated with this terrible disease, by providing financial assistance; and to increase public awareness for the need for organ donation.
