QUEEN'S SHINERAMA AT A GLANCE
Cystic Fibrosis is a fatal genetic illness that affects around 1 in 3,600 children born in Canada alone. As it stands, there is no cure.
"Cystic fibrosis causes various effects on the body, but mainly affects the digestive system and lungs. The degree of cystic fibrosis involvement differs from person to person. However, the persistence and ongoing infection in the lungs, with destruction of lungs and loss of lung function, eventually causes death in the majority of people who have cystic fibrosis." - Cystic Fibrosis Canada
