STUDY BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
Researchers at CF care centers are using quality of life measurements to assist in determining the best time to refer for a lung transplant in CF children with end-stage lung disease. The way children with CF and their families perceive their quality of life is important when deciding when to refer children for a lung transplant.

The study will compare the quality of life perceptions in CF children who receive a lung transplant versus those children who are not lung transplant candidates. To determine this, researchers will be using a validated CF questionnaire that assesses the quality of life perception in children and their parents (or other caregivers).
