Cystic fibrosis is a fatal genetic disease with no cure. CF causes various effects on the body, but mainly affects the digestive system and lungs. A defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs leading to infections, extensive lung damage, and eventually, respiratory failure.
“We are grateful for CARSTAR’s enthusiasm and dedication to raise funds, awareness and help advance the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation,” said Elizabeth Thompson, senior director for National Corporate Engagement, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. “CARSTAR is steadfast in their efforts to support the cystic fibrosis cause across North America and we cannot wait to accelerate this momentum. It is because of companies like CARSTAR, we believe that one day CF will stand for cure found.”
