Five Feet Apart’ Movie Ignites Debate in Cystic Fibrosis Community

A film about two lovestruck teens with a disease that demands they keep their distance from each other — literally — has touched off a spirited debate among those living with the illness.

 

 

Scheduled for release next Friday, the PG-13 drama “Five Feet Apart” takes place against the backdrop of cystic fibrosis, a rare and ultimately fatal condition caused by a genetic mutation that attacks the lungs as well as other parts of the bodyAbout 30,000 people in the United States currently have the disease and an estimated 70,000 worldwide are affected.

 

 

The disease is progressive and there’s no cure. The average life expectancy of a person in United States with the disease is 37 years of age, although that number is rising as treatments become more effective.
