You can make a difference

When you are donating to CF Canada, you are supporting not only those who live with CF by helping us invest in research and care but also all the people who care for them (parents, brothers, sisters, friends, lovers…). By becoming a donor, whether it is a one-time gift or a monthly donation, you are changing lives.

“Cystic fibrosis is a deadly disease. We can fight it and do our best to treat it but there is no cure or control yet, so young people continue to die. CF Canada receives no governmental funding and it relies solely on private contributors. Did you know that when both parents carry the CF gene mutation there is a 1 in 4 chance that the child will be born with CF? Over 4,100 Canadians live with CF and they need your help to continue to beat the odds for decades to come until a cure is finally found.” – Meaghan MacRury

“Why give to Cystic Fibrosis Canada? This year I turned 40 years old. Without CF Canada and our donors the research, medication, advancements in therapy and nutrition I would not be here today. I would not have traveled the world, built a family and continue to be an ambassador/advocate for CF Canada. Over 40 years I’ve seen many things. Tragically I have also seen hundreds of young people before they celebrate their 40th birthday. Our continued efforts and donations will ensure that all people born with cystic fibrosis live to celebrate decades of birthdays.” – Rob Burtch

“Because right now, we are closer than we ever have been to a cure for CF. Currently, there are incredibly promising new treatments being developed in CF research that are truly making a difference for people with CF. For me, this means I’ll be able to see my son grow up. There are truly no words that can express the gratitude and relief I feel when I think about being around for my son because of advances in CF research. Research and clinical care funded by CF Canada continues to make a big difference. For the first time ever, I can actually see a cure for CF in my future.” – Kim Wood

“[It is important to give to CF Canada] Because people with CF deserve to live a normal life too.” – Tim Vallillee

“Life and hope! Giving creates hope, improves quality of life and gives immeasurable personal gratification. When giving to CF Canada, you are giving life and hope to current and future generations of Cystic Fibrosis patients.  You are providing hope for a future free of declining health, mounds of medication, numerous hospital stays and the tragedy of end-stage lung disease.” – Brenda Chambers-Ivey

“The impact of donations made to CF Canada can be seen so clearly – the funding isn’t only going towards some future cure, it’s also helping Canadians living with CF right now! It’s an exciting time in CF research and care.” – Terra Stephenson
