The question might seem simple but the answer is complicated for people living with cystic fibrosis. Beckett’s life is filled with typical nine-year-old activities: diving lessons, sleepovers, summer camp. But cystic fibrosis is always there, interrupting plans, threatening to take over. There is no cure.

"By all accounts, Beckett’s not going to get the same time as everyone else," says Beckett’s mom Desneige. "I can give him an ordinary life or an extraordinary one and I choose extraordinary. That’s what cystic fibrosis demands of us..."

Do something extraordinary right now, for Beckett and the thousands of other Canadians living with cystic fibrosis. Help us find the answers to the hard questions that still surround cystic fibrosis. Help us find a cure. Please give.

 

“Will this therapy work for him? How do we do this in the best way and what decisions can we live with? Those are the big hard questions that don’t have mechanical and mathematically derived answers. Those are the things that keep me up at night.” — Desneige Meyer, mom to Beckett who lives with CF.

More than 4,200 Canadians live with cystic fibrosis, the most common fatal genetic disease affecting children and young adults in Canada. Because of support from people like you, research is helping people with cystic fibrosis live longer and healthier than ever before. But there is still no cure and too many Canadians with the disease still die too young. For those Canadians, for the people who love them, for all of the questions that still surround cystic fibrosis, donate now.

 

“I want to take care of myself in the best possible way, to be disciplined enough to stay healthy, to live as long as I can to honour the miracle that saved me, to honour the donor who gave me life.” — Anne-Sophie Barrette, two-time double lung transplant recipient

Because of people like you, Cystic Fibrosis Canada has contributed more than $253 million towards research that is helping Canadians born with cystic fibrosis live longer than ever before. The current estimated median age of survival for Canadians with cystic fibrosis is more than 52 years; it was five when our work first started in 1960. By helping to support the 42 cystic fibrosis clinics which care for the thousands of Canadians living with cystic fibrosis, along with funding research that is discovering new therapies and medications, people like you are changing lives.
