On top of the Heffner donation, we also auctioned off a Gold Package in Detailing for you to bid on and Mike Farwell, along with assistance from the Heffner team, will do the work. The highest bid wins, with all proceeds supporting the cause.
Congratulations to Margaret on your winning bid. Thank you and thanks to everyone who placed a bid to help in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. At present, there is no cure.
CF causes various effects on the body, but mainly affects the digestive system and lungs. The degree of CF 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.
Typical complications caused by cystic fibrosis are:
It is estimated that one in every 3,600 children born in Canada has CF. More than 4,300 Canadian children, adolescents, and adults with cystic fibrosis attend specialized CF clinics.
Mike Farwell is a talk show host at 570 News in Kitchener. His goal with the #Farwell4Hire campaign is to raise funds and awareness with the goal of one day curing CF. #Farwell4Hire is a local campaign where you hire Farwell to perform odds jobs around your home or business, then instead of paying him, you make a donation towards the cause.
