Be the reason for a cure.

Jim spends his days helping people get the right medicine. Six-year-old Marilou twirls through life, on and off the ice. Blake wrestles his bigger brothers, showing them a thing or two about being small but mighty. All of them have cystic fibrosis. In between filling prescriptions, skating practices and horsing around, they sit with inhalers, swallow enzymes and undertake a multitude of other interventions to lessen the impact of the illness on their bodies. Sometimes, despite their best efforts, they still get sick. Be a part of helping them live life without those constant interventions and hospital visits.

Because Jim helps others get better.

The most common fatal genetic disease affecting children and young adults in Canada, cystic fibrosis impacts over 4,100 Canadians, from babies to adults. With your support, huge strides have been made in understanding the disease, helping people live longer than ever. But too many people living with cystic fibrosis still die too young, their lungs and digestive system unable to fight any longer. A cure is within reach. Be the reason one is found.
