About Cystic Fibrosis
Dollar Day on Clifton Hill has raised thousands of dollars each year for Cystic Fibrosis and we are hoping to raise even more this year. Cystic Fibrosis Canada describes Cystic Fibrosis (CF) as “the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults with no known cure. CF primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. In the lungs, where the effects of the disease are most devastating, a build-up of thick mucus causes increasingly severe respiratory problems. This mucus and protein also build up in the digestive tract making it difficult to digest and absorb nutrients from food. Large quantities of digestive enzymes must be consumed with every meal and snack.”
Nancy Clayton, vice-president of the Niagara chapter for Cystic Fibrosis Canada has organized the Museum Day event since its inception in 1989, over 30 years ago. She came up with the idea of “Dollar Day” to find a way to raise awareness of a disease that few people know much about, while raising money for the cause. It has been a huge success ever since.
According to the organization, about one in 25 Canadians carries a defective version of the gene responsible for CF.
