La fibrose kystique
Christmas à la Carte is a holiday greeting card sales campaign that raises money for Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. More than 4 300 Canadians, including about 1,200 Quebecers, have cystic fibrosis. At present, there is no cure. CF mainly affects the digestive system and lungs. The persistence and ongoing infection in the lungs, with destruction of lungs and loss of lung function, will eventually lead to death in the majority of people with CF.
Since its establishment in 1960, Cystic Fibrosis Canada, an internationally recognized leader, has invested more than $261 million in leading research, clinical care, and defense of the rights of those suffering from cystic fibrosis.
Today, thanks to you, we are closer than ever to a world free from cystic fibrosis!
