In response to the Ronnie's questions about late diagnosis of CF. It is quite common for adults to be diagnosed in their 20's, -50's In fact their is a 62 year old who was diagnosed recently.

Ronnie, you do not "get" CF at this age. CF is a genetic illness. No matter when you are diagnosed with CF, be it a week old to 70 years old, you were born with the CF gene, one cannot grow it, catch it etc.

Check out the web site Cystic L for more good info on CF. http://Cystic-L.org
