CYSTIC-L

CYSTIC-L is an email support-group for people with Cystic Fibrosis and their friends, families, and health-care providers. It includes both casual banter about the varied impact that CF has on our lives, as well as technical and medical information exchanges that help us to overcome the more unpleasant factors that this silly little gene imposes upon us. An extensive FAQ is available free to subscribers (contains much CF information, and references to other CF resources). There are over 500 list subscribers. Current traffic levels are running around 20-50 messages per day; a digest option is available which compiles messages and distributes them once every 24 hours.
