    I have cystic fibrosis and fight every day against this awful disease. You should be ashamed claiming the disease is no longer fatal when it most certainly is. There is no cure and the cf foundation needs all the help it can get for donations that contribute to research. Do not down play this terminal illness because people will stop donating if they think the problem is solved.

    I am a CF mom. This tagline is INCREDIBLY irresponsible. CF is most certainly still a fatal disease. Please do not print or report false information and update this article accordingly.

    The medical definition of “treatable” is healed or cured. Stating CF is treatable could not be further from the truth. This article is extremely misleading and irresponsible. There are medicinal breakthroughs to manage symptoms. Big difference. Feel free to ask any one of the 60,000 parents of a CF child or any one of the 30,000 Americans with CF prior to publishing next time.

    The title of this article is grossly misleading. If you actually read the article, what you can take away from it is that there are more treatment options available than before. Treatments aren’t a one size fits all for this very complicated disease, of varying consequence. While the advancements help to increase the average life expectancy, there is no cure for cystic fibrosis. It is still a fatal disease.

    Very irresponsible but expected from Fox. Cystic Fibrosis is a very fatal disease and no 2 cases are alile. Do some actual research before posting nonsense. All you do is hinder the help we need.

  • Stefanie Szarek

    This is a complete lie!!
    How dare you spread this!
    The lives of these children and young adults is a constant battle to avoid death.
    You should be ashamed!

  • Sarah

    Please issue a correction. This headline is grossly misleading, and does a major disservice to the cf community.

  • Elizabeth Oldenborg Clark

    This is an absolute lie. It’s beyond disgraceful and deplorable. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Thousands of children die from cystic fibrosis every year; there is no cure. It’s a congenital disease; it is a progressive disease. You people sicken me.
