Understanding Cystic Fibrosis:
CF is a genetic disorder that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. It produces thick and sticky mucus that can clog the airways, making breathing difficult, and can lead to frequent infections. Additionally, CF impacts the pancreas, hindering the release of enzymes necessary for proper digestion, leading to nutritional challenges. While CF presents hurdles, it also showcases the incredible strength and determination of those who live with it. Learn more here.
Our Comprehensive Approach:
Our providers take a comprehensive and holistic approach to CF management. Being part of the BCHP patient family means that your child with CF will have access to an extensive team of experts in various specialties, including pediatric pulmonologists, respiratory therapists, nutritionists, and social workers, all working together to provide seamless, integrated care. From specialized medical treatments to emotional support and family education, BCHP is dedicated to empowering your child to thrive and lead a healthy, fulfilling life, with treatment plans tailored to your family's specific needs.

By fostering a family-centered approach, we ensure that everyone involved in the patient's care is well-informed and engaged in the patient's journey.
Just learning about your child’s CF diagnosis? Here is what you should know.
Our commitment to our patients goes beyond the medical setting. We provide ongoing support and guidance, helping families navigate the challenges of CF. We understand the emotional and social aspects of living with a chronic illness and offer resources to address these important aspects of well-being.
Research and Clinical Trials:
Clinical trials and research studies play a vital role in advancing medical knowledge and treatment options for CF. By participating in these studies, patients can contribute to the development of new therapies and potential cures, not only for themselves but also for future generations. Being part of a study allows patients to receive access to cutting-edge treatments and medications that may not be widely available yet, potentially leading to improved health outcomes and a better quality of life.
