Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects the respiratory, digestive, and reproductive systems. For children with CF, their body produces thick, sticky mucus that clogs their lungs, leading to severe respiratory problems. Cystic fibrosis affects thousands of children worldwide and can significantly impact their quality of life.

Sepsis can also be known as septicaemia, blood infection or blood poisoning. It occurs when what may be a simple infection progresses throughout the body and the body’s response to an infection damages its own organs and tissues.
