Cystic Fibrosis or CF is a fatal inherited disorder affecting the respiratory, digestive and
reproductive systems.  Individuals with CF must consume large quantities of enzymes in order to absorb adequate nutrients from food; and must undergo daily chest physiotherapy to loosen
mucus which clogs the lungs.  As the disease progresses, recurrent bouts of infection cause
severe and irreversible damage to the lungs.  Despite aggressive treatment, virtually everyone
with cystic fibrosis eventually dies of lung disease.  Please visit www.cysticfibrosis.ca
MS or Multiple Sclerosis is the most common disease of the central nervous system affecting young adults in Canada.  Scars form on the myelin sheath which protects the brain and spinal cord.  When they form, they interrupt the normal flow of messages from the brain to different parts of the body.  This may result in loss of coordination, difficulty in walking, slurred speech, vision disruptions or fatigue to name only a few of the symptoms.  Kinsmen in the Atlantic Provinces have been involved in the fight against this disease since 1977.  Please visit www.mssociety.ca
