My family didn’t choose this cause to support – it chose us when our oldest daughter was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.

Cystic fibrosis, which affects the lungs and digestive system, is the most common, fatal, genetic disease affecting young Canadians.

In the digestive tract, cystic fibrosis blocks the absorption of adequate nutrients from food. In the lungs, the effects of the disease are most devastating; and with time, respiratory problems become increasingly severe.

Ultimately, most cystic fibrosis deaths are due to lung disease.

Please join my family this May, Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month, for the sale of ‘Mums for Moms’ at Bower and Parkland shopping centres on May 8 & 9, and ‘Great Strides: Taking Steps to Cure Cystic Fibrosis’ walk at McKenzie Trails in Red Deer on May 31.

Together, we can help the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation find a cure or an effective control for cystic fibrosis.
