3rd European CF Awareness week – 21-27 November 2011

From 21 to 27 November 2011, CF Europei and patient associations in 39 European countries organize the 3rd European CF Awareness Week, to fight for better and longer lives for all people living with CF.

Cystic Fibrosisi (CF) or mucoviscidose is the most common life threatening inherited disease in Europe. CF Europe wants to make the public aware of Cystic Fibrosis and the problems patients have to cope with.  Although 1 of 30 Europeans carries the gene that can cause CF, few people know of the disease and the patients and their families have to fight for understanding and support every day. CF Europe calls on the public to join their solidarity actions, to support their fight for a better and longer life for all people with CF.  Spread the information and organize an awareness or fundraising activity in your neighborhood.

The European CF Awareness week is an initiative from CF Europe together with national patient associations in 39 countries.  For more information go to www.cfweek.eu
