THE STORY:

This summer I am raising money for CYSTIC FIBROSIS research!

What is cystic Fibrosis? Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. There is no cure.
Cystic fibrosis causes various effects on the body, but mainly affects the digestive system and lungs. The persistence and ongoing infection in the lungs, with destruction of lungs and loss of lung function, eventually causes death in the majority of people who have cystic fibrosis.

I have had to opportunity to hear several families share their stories with my team. Discovering you have a child with CF is such heartbreaking news and as a parent you will do anything to help your child. These families lives changed dramatically, having to stick to a strict schedule of medication and hospital visits for their children. We also heard a girl named Tara's story, who went through a double lung transplant because of this disease. ( check out helping tara breathe easy on Facebook for her story). These are only a few cases out of the thousands of children affected. It is estimated that one in every 3,600 children born in Canada has cystic fibrosis.

I am so grateful to have been able to breathe so freely and without effort my whole life, and I am especially thankful for being able to pursue my passion to dance. This is a big reason why i want to raise money for CF research. I want all children to be able to follow their passions without limitations. I want to help find a cure for CF.

Help the Social Science Soph Team and myself raise as much money as we can for this cause this summer before we finish it all off will Shinerama in the fall with incoming first year students! I have set a personal goal of $1000 and I will be updating VIA facebook my experiences. Thank you so much for your time reading this message!
