Goal

I am excited to participate in the 2019 Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History! The walk raises awareness and critical funds for cystic fibrosis (CF) research and care.

This year I am walking to honour my son Chris MacLeod who will celebrate his 50th birthday in September.  Chris was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at 2 1/2 years of age, at a time when children with CF were not expected to reach adulthood. Chris has beat the odds with his positive attitude and thanks to advances in research funded by CF Canada. In 2012 Chris' health took a sharp decline and thankfully there was a new drug called Kalydeco which had just passed clinical trials and was shown to be effective for Chris' genetic type. Within weeks on this drug his condition improved and now 7 years later he continues to do well. Now he advocates for others with CF to have access to similar lifesaving drugs.

Please join me in supporting the Walk to Make CF History and help those affected by CF to realize their dreams. 

.Due to the generosity of our community, we are closer than ever to ending CF. The median age of survival in Canada for those living with CF is 53.3 years and the CF population is thriving due to our world-class research and care, but we still have work to do.

Donate and together we can make history!

Thank you in advance for your support.
