Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. There is no cure. Affecting the digestive system and lungs, the persistence lung infection eventually causes death. One in 3600 Canadian children are born with it. Since 1960 Cystic Fibrosis Canada (CFC), a national not-for-profit organization is one of the world’s top three charitable organizations committed to finding a cure. Investing $150+ million in leading research, innovation and care, resulted in CF Canadians having one of the highest median survival rates in the world.
We rely on your generous support to improve the lives of Canadians living with cystic fibrosis, and ultimately find a cure for this devastating disease. Thank you.
