Seth Jacobs has cystic fibrosis and has created this video to explain how he deals with CF. Right now, there is no cure for CF. Even if symptoms are mild at first, they get steadily worse over time. But there is hope. Fifteen years ago, most children with CF would die before reaching their teens. Now, with new treatments available, more than half live into their thirties, and new research is leading to the possibility of a cure. Statistics now show that nearly 40% of the people living with CF in the United States are 18 years or older.
