Shiner of The Week 🌞

Shinerama has been a tradition amongst Canadian universities for over 50 years. The success of this Cystic Fibrosis Canada campaign is mostly due to an accumulation of creative fundraising ideas over the years. Our shiner of the week this week is @emmagail_7, she will be representing the McMaster Society of Off-Campus Students this Welcome Week! Emma has combined her creativity and her skills to help fundraise for Shinerama. She is offering to hem her fellow WW reps suits in exchange for shine donations. Emma has found a creative way to positively impact her peers while also raising money for CF research and care.

When asked : "why do you shine?", Emma told us: "Well you see I have a lot of hobbies that I never really get to use anymore. So being able to shine I get to use my really artsy side of just being too crafty for my own good, i decided to hem repsuits. I'm also going to be making friendship bracelets because it's just something I really enjoy to do but my mom hates all my finished products being around the house. On a more personal level, i witnessed someone close to me pass away from a rare genetic diease. It wasn't cystic fibrosis but the life expectancy was until the age of five. So the fact that us as university students we have managed to give people a chance to be able to achieve their dreams is amazing and gives me the motivation to Shine. As I put my skills to use, and over excitedly fundraise (seriously if anyone has a shine event you need people at let me know I am also down to help) while it is nice to win the rez or faculty cup, but what would be even nicer is if Cystic Fibrosis was cured. Shine on McMaster!"

Meet 3 year old little Carina! I came across this sweet little dancing machine's video and I decided to reach out to her mom @jessbechill for permission to repost it. What I came to learn was shocking! Carina was diagnosed at birth with #CysticFibrosis. Luckily with an early diagnosis, modern medicine, staying active and dancing, AND lots of love from her family, Carina has been relatively healthy so far. It being May, Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month, I urge you all to Educate Yourselves, Spread Awareness, and Donate to help people like little Carina live longer healthier lives! #AWorldWithoutCF #CFAwareness

Hi Everyone! As some of you may know, for the first couple years of my life I was very sick and not getting better, but at the young age of 2 I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. I'm happy to be here today to share my story because after getting on the right medications and doing treatments daily, I was able to get well again. But that didn't mean that my Cystic Fibrosis went away and since there is no cure for this disease, I still live with it today. However, because of amazing fundraising events and charitable donations, we are raising money to send to researchers to take steps towards a cure OR control for CF.
Your likes and shares are powerful and raise lots of awareness for this disease, but your donations to CF are helping to make dramatic changes in the lives of those living with this disease. With the median age of survival for those living with Cystic Fibrosis sitting around 50 years old, that is incredible but still far too young for the life I want to live.
Your donations are helping to create a world without CF. What would a wold without CF mean to me? It would mean waking up each and everyday taking huge breaths of fresh air, not worrying about the future, not stressing about missing out on growing old with my friends and family. Each donation gives me more hope for a bright future, to make my dream a reality and that hope is something you cannot put a price tag on.
Please help me create a world without CF, it would mean everything to me. The Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History is 5 short days away and we are on track to raise as much money as possible for this disease. If you would like to be a part of making CF stand for Cure Found, the link to donate is in my bio. Thank you so much.πŸ’™πŸ’™ #aworldwithoutcf #cfsucks #curecf @cfcanada

#Day5: I'm thankful for CF Canada. Not only because they are solely dedicated to finding a Cure for CF, but because they have giving me the opportunity to bring the Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History to my home town.
