In the United Kingdom starting April 29 and running through May 5, 2012 will be Cystic Fibrosis week.  This idea was launched by Ben Shephard, celebrity patron.  In a blog post he asked people to get involved to bring awareness to CF.  Supporters will be asked to sign an e-petition so that prescription costs for people with CF do not see an increase.  An exclusive film will be launched on the CF week website April 30 to celebrate cystic fibrosis week.  Please check out the links for more information.
