The Charity for 2018
« on: February 08, 2018, 09:03:32 AM »


Gatecon is proud to be supporting Cystic Fibrosis Canada in 2018.
We have raised funds for this very worthy charity in the past and are pleased to be linking up with JR Bourne to bring further awareness to the condition and to the charity.

Proceeds from the Cystic Fibrosis lots at the convention auction will be donated to Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

If you would like to donate item/s to the charity auction please let me know at gatecon.events@gmail.com or send me a pm here. Obviously props and costumes or other Stargate or sci-fi related items would be most welcome.

About cystic fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. It is a multi-system disease that affects mainly the lungs and the digestive system. In the lungs, where the effects are most devastating, a build-up of thick mucus causes severe respiratory problems. Mucus also builds up in the digestive tract, making it difficult to digest and absorb nutrients from food. As improved therapies have helped to address the malnutrition issues, most deaths related to cystic fibrosis are now due to lung disease. There is no cure. In Canada on average, one baby in 3,500 suffers from cystic fibrosis while in Québec, the average is one baby in 2,500.

Cystic Fibrosis Canada

Cystic Fibrosis Canada is one of the three principal charitable organizations committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis and is an internationally recognized leader in funding research, innovation and clinical care. Cystic Fibrosis Canada has invested more funding in life-saving CF research and care than any other non-governmental agency in Canada. Since 1960, Cystic Fibrosis Canada has invested more than $235 million in leading research, care and advocacy, resulting in one of the world’s highest survival rates for Canadians living with cystic fibrosis.
