Cystic fibrosis is caused by a faulty gene that a child inherits from both of their parents.
The two organs most affected are the lungs and pancreas, where the thick mucus causes breathing and digestive problems.
The thicker mucus has trouble moving out of the lungs, so bacteria can remain and cause infections.
