CF causes various effects on the body, but mainly affects the digestive system and lungs. The degree of cystic fibrosis severity differs from person to person, however, the persistence and ongoing infection in the lungs, with destruction of lungs and loss of lung function, will eventually lead to death in the majority of people with CF.
Since May is Cystic Fibrosis month in Canada, I am pledging to ride my bike 200 kilometers over the course of this month. This works out to be about 6.5km a day! As someone who has Cystic Fibrosis this will be a hard challenge, but with the support of my friends and family I will be able to reach my goal.
I will be tracking my rides through the Strava app and updating where I stand on the 200km goal daily through my Instagram story and Go Fund Me page.
More information about Cystic Fibrosis Canada: For us, it's a matter of when a cure or control for cystic fibrosis (CF) will be discovered, not if. Cystic Fibrosis Canada is one of the world's top charitable organizations committed to finding a cure for CF, the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. Since our establishment in 1960, our investments in research and cutting-edge healthcare have resulted in the estimated median age of survival for Canadians with CF to increase beyond 50 years of age.
