Simple Things Anyone Can Do to Fight Cystic Fibrosis
In the effort to vanquish the scourge of cystic fibrosis, anyone can help.
Even if you don’t have any friends or family members with cystic fibrosis, you can still take steps to fight back against this devastating genetic disease.
As the saying goes, after all, it’s the little things that count.
Wondering what you can do to help?
Well, you won’t be wondering that for very much longer – because here are a few simple, practical things you can do to help crush cystic fibrosis.
- Read up on cystic fibrosis – Learn about the struggles and hardships that those with cystic fibrosis endure. Poke around web articles and even scholarly, scientific papers to discover more about the disease – why it occurs, and what treatments currently exist. Doing this kind of research will allow you to better understand how those with the disease are affected (and how whole families are impacted), giving you even greater insight into how you can help in this fight.
- Participate in walks – Every year, walks are carried out in Canada, the United States, the U.K. – and other nations – to turn the spotlight on cystic fibrosis and raise funds. Participating in these walks is an important (and invigorating!) way to support medical research on cystic fibrosis.
- Raise awareness by sharing stories on social media – In this day and age, social media is just about everywhere. So tap into the power of social media to raise awareness about cystic fibrosis. Whether it’s through Facebook, Snapchat, YouTube, or some other platform, you can – by pressing just a few buttons – bring attention to the realities of cystic fibrosis. One of the best ways to do this is by sharing the stories of those who are living and contending with cystic fibrosis.
- Donate funds – Every donation helps, no matter how small or how big! Contributing funds to organisations devoted to researching and curing cystic fibrosis is an extremely effective way to combat the disease. If this is something you can do, we strongly encourage you to donate to an organisation like Cystic Fibrosis Canada (go here to donate).
Also, if you’re into stylish watches that make you look particularly hip, then getting a JWLS watch is an excellent way to both elevate your wardrobe and fight cystic fibrosis. The reason why? With every purchase of a JWLS watch, a portion of the profits are donated directly to Cystic Fibrosis Canada. It’s a fantastic way to look good while doing good.
