Make a Holiday Gift Before December 31st
For More Moments Like These
This holiday season, people everywhere will savour special moments. For Canadians who live with cystic fibrosis, life’s special moments are treasured even more. When you live with a fatal genetic disease, time is precious.
Despite the challenges we have all faced in 2020, Megan, mom of twin boys, who lives with CF, continues to push further to make meaningful memories and moments with the people she loves while she can. Today, that means exploring the mountains with her family and dreaming of their next holiday overseas.
“I want to see my kids growing up, I want to celebrate more anniversaries with my husband, I want to be able to retire because I’ve had a full and meaningful career, I want to be able to have the honour and privilege of growing older and celebrating more birthdays. All I want is to have the extraordinary privilege of living a normal and ordinary life. ” - Megan Parker, lives with cystic fibrosis
Time is so precious, and this is something William and his sister Leonie, both living with cystic fibrosis, know all too well. When William had to see Leonie’s health decline and came close to lose his sister while she waited for a double lung transplant to save her life, he felt helpless and terrified. He doesn’t want anyone to experience what him and Leonie went through.
“Growing up with my older sister, Léonie, was a gift. My sister and I treasured every moment of our childhood together, but we never knew what the future would hold.” – William Côté, lives with cystic fibrosis
