CF for CF for CF

August 28, 2010

Hattie Dunstan has cystic fibrosis. But in her words “cystic fibrosis does not have me”.
And on the evening of Thursday August 26th over 300 ladies descended on Glen Eagle for Couture Fashion for a Cure Found for Cystic Fibrosis. Thanks to the dedication and hard work of a group of Hattie’s friends, under the leadership of the incredible Kim Alderdice, and with the financial support of wonderful people like Dr. and Maria Meghory, Sarah Crandall Haney, and many more, the ladies were treated to an amazing evening of fashion…..and an education about cystic fibrosis. And the whole show was streamed live to Hattie, who is recovering from her life-saving double lung transplant. Not your average Thursday night – truly remarkable for lack of a better word – and I count myself lucky for having been there. It was another shining example of what friends do, and what community really means.

    It was an abfab night, no question! Think about this….how about your own power to actually save a life, maybe even two or three. C’mon peeps, sign your Gift of Life Consent Form/Organ & Tissue Donor Registration. Hattie Dunstan received her gift, a double lung transplant, because someone took the time to fill out the registration. You can download this registration at http://www.giftoflife.ca
    You can do this, just takes a few minutes. As Fashionista Emcee of the Evening, K.C. Heenan said “a lot charities ask you for an arm and a leg….we are just asking for your lungs or your heart…”

    Somewhere in this province, someone is in a transplant ward waiting…waiting…

    Make a difference. Save a life.

    Well said Christine. A simple gesture could save a life. What a proud legacy that would be.
