Raise Your Voice With Celine
May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month. Celine, who is the National Celebrity Patron for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, recently taped a video message about the importance of cystic fibrosis newborn screening. Cystic fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. Newborn CF screening is now a standard in many countries and in certain Canadian provinces except for Newfoundland & Labrador, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island that still do not screen for this disease. Celine joins Cystic Fibrosis Canada in urging families to call on their provincial legislators to commit to newborn screening for cystic fibrosis.
