What is Cystic Fibrosis?

According to the Mayo clinic, “Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disorder that causes severe damage to the lungs, digestive system and other organs in the body. Cystic fibrosis affects the cells that produce mucus, sweat and digestive juices. In people with CF, a defective gene causes the secretions to become sticky and thick. Instead of acting as lubricants, the secretions plug up tubes, ducts and passageways, especially in the lungs and pancreas.”

Why do the KISS CF Goodbye fundraiser in Toronto? Tori Taskas, 24 has cystic fibrosis and explains:


“My name Is Tori Taskas, I’m 24 from Toronto, and I have cystic fibrosis. If you saw me in my everyday life you would think I’m just a normal teenager. I’m a full-time student, I like to go out and have fun with my friends, I love to sing and play music, and I do everything I can to enjoy life to the fullest. What most people don’t see is all the hard work I put in behind the scenes to stay healthy every day. I was diagnosed with CF at birth. Growing up you could say I had a pretty normal childhood. It wasn’t until I was around seven years old that I had to be admitted into the hospital for the first time. I don’t remember much of that hospital visit, but I do remember seeing my dad cry for the first time and me telling him it would be okay (Can you imagine that?). Fortunately, I recovered quickly and went six whole years without ever being hospitalized again.”
