Cystic Fibrosis National Awareness Week and 65 Roses Day 2017
Cystic Fibrosis National Awareness Week takes place on April 10th - 16th 2017, with 65 Roses Day taking place on Thursday April 13th.
Why 65 Roses?
'65 Roses' is how some children first learn how to say 'Cystic Fibrosis'. The symbol in Ireland for '65 Roses Week' is a purple rose.
