Cystic Fibrosis Foundations

November 2nd, 2009

The hubby & I are planning to attend , D as a player and me as the cheering rail bird. As part of the entry process we have been asked to write a blog about our favorite charity, which I think is a wonderful idea.

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Two charities close to my heart are the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. This disease is usually diagnosed at a very young age, 2 years and up. CF is a defective gene that causes the body to produce a thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs which leads to life-threatening lung infections. This mucus also prevents the body to break down and absorb food.

Forty years ago this terrible disease took the lives of children before they were old enough to start school. However, today with the help of advances in research, medical treatments and donations the survival age for a person with CF is more than 37 years. Sadly, CF is still a fatal disease. These two foundations accept donations to continue the effort in finding a cure for this horrible disease.
