In brief: Varies considerably
There is considerable variance between children and between institutions for the cost of of hospitalizing a child with cf.
Children have variable needs for hospitalization depending on their genotype and adherence to their regimen, and (unfortunately) there is a large amount of variance in practices while hospitalized and costs for these practices.

In brief: Heavy
The new science of epigenetics tells us that our genes can be manipulated by diet and non-caloric supplements.
It does not cure the disease but it sure helps! I have done it with some children wth cystic fibrosis. Recurrent lung infections are the major problem.
