Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common, fatal genetic disease affecting young Canadians. It is a multi-organ disease that effects the lungs and the digestive system. Ultimately, most CF deaths are due to lung disease. There is no cure. About one in every 25 Canadians carries a defective version of the gene responsible for CF and currently there are more than 4,000 Canadians living with the disease.
In 2015/2016 Cystic Fibrosis Canada will invest more than 7.7 million in innovative research and clinical care. Researchers are attacking cystic fibrosis on many fronts. We know this research is making a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis because the median age for life expectancy of Canadians living with CF is now 50.9 years the highest in the world from 5 years 25 years ago.
North Hill Centre is very proud of our partnership with Cystic Fibrosis Canada and our continued support and partnership helps to fund critical research and care to help the letters CF one day be used to represent “Cure Found”.
