Impact Statement
The contributions of Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s volunteer community have helped to change the cystic fibrosis (CF) story — and what a powerful, encouraging and inspiring story it is. Thanks to their time and effort, we advanced research and care that has more than doubled life expectancy for a Canadian born with cystic fibrosis and brought CF to the forefront of Canadian and regional conversations. By volunteers generously donating their time and energy to support the important work we do, we can realize our vision of a day when no individual or family will be affected by this disease.
