Cystic Fibrosis in Ibiza
Ibiza has always been characterized by the solidarity of its people, among many other things. Although Cystic Fibrosis is a minority disease, people who have it receive a lot of support from institutions, businesses and society in general.
The destination of the donation
The Respiralia Foundation will allocate this donation to the project “Education equals Health in Cystic Fibrosis”, in which people with Cystic Fibrosis learn tools for the treatment of Cystic Fibrosis.
What is Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic, serious and degenerative disease that to date has no cure.
It mainly affects the respiratory, digestive, reproductive and sweat glands.
The treatment for Cystic Fibrosis includes antibiotherapy, a healthy and hypercaloric nutrition and respiratory physiotherapy combined with endurance exercises.
Currently, more than 2000 mutations are known in the gene that is defective in people with Cystic Fibrosis, although only about 150 mutations are described as causing the disease.
Statistics show that 1 in 5,000 people in Spain has Cystic Fibrosis (1 in 6,400 in the Balearic Islands) and 1 in 35 people is a carrier of a gene that causes the disease (1 in 40 in the Balearic Islands).
In the Balearic Islands there are 76 known diagnosed cases, but statistics speak of between 85 and 90 possible cases.
The awareness project of the Respiralia Foundation aims to raise awareness of this disease in order to discover those cases of people who have Cystic Fibrosis but have not yet been diagnosed.
