Approximately just 30,000 adults and children suffer from CF in the USA which works out to about 0.01 % of the population of the United States. Max's drug expenses alone come to just over $42,000 a year, our health insurance covers the vast majority. Honestly I think CF patients, with an average lifespan of approximately 35 years, are going to get short shrift. It is an expensive disease and the so called universal healthcare coverage will result in reduced access to therapies and drugs in the interest in saving the bottom line. The system right now is not perfect, but works for families such as mine.
