Holiday Wishes

On Giving Tuesday, November 27, Cystic Fibrosis Canada launched our holiday giving campaign Tough Questions. Our community was introduced to five families across Canada affected by CF, their stories, and the simple questions that hurt to hear when the future is unknown.

Our direct mail donors were provided with a special opportunity to share their holiday wishes for the CF community. Each mailing included a story from the Tough Questions campaign, as well as a small snowflake, where donors had the opportunity to write their holiday wish and send it back to CF Canada. Our President and CEO, Kelly Grover, and Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, Jennifer Nebesky, went live on Facebook to share these wishes with our community.

Here are some of the highlights of the wishes:

“My wish is to travel across Canada (and the world) as a motivational speaker to share what life was like before and then after receiving the gift of Kalydeco so that those who are waiting for their miracle drug like mine can experience the same amazing freedom of deep breathing and energy. Merry Christmas everyone!!” – Tim Vallillee
