Who can resist Halloween kids in costume? For a donation to Cystic Fibrosis Canada

Pictures of Halloween Sweeties to benefit CF fight

Erin Wallis and Shannon Lim have  co-created an incredible fund raiser to help in the fight agains cystic fibrosis.

They are combining their passion for the CF cause, Wallis’ talent as a photographer, Lim’s expertise in design, and their mutual love of children in costumes to create a fun filled Halloween fundraiser.

Wallis will photograph your child in costume on Sunday, Oct. 30 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Berwick By The Sea for a donation to Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

Wallis and Lim are thrilled to have great support from the team at Berwick who jumped at the idea of hosting the event.

Wallis said, “It’s totally a win-win situation. I get to spend a few hours photographing your hilarious small people all dressed up, and you get photos of your little ones dressed up, and Cystic Fibrosis Canada will benefit.  Also exciting is we get to share it with the seniors who live at Berwick. I love it.

“Come! Smile! Share your little sweeties in costume and make this a very happy Halloween for all.”

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. At present, there is no cure.

CF causes various effects on the body, but mainly affects the digestive system and lungs. The degree of CF severity differs from person to person, however, the persistence and ongoing infection in the lungs, with destruction of lungs and loss of lung function, will eventually lead to death in the majority of people with CF.

Wallis and Lim have a special interest in helping the CF cause.  Their good friend Kim Wood who recently moved back to Campbell River has CF. Every aspect of her life is affected by this disease – much of her time is spent on treatments.  She must travel frequently to Vancouver for specialized medical care. Yet she is always positive.

Wood said, “I’m so grateful to Erin and Shannon for planning this wonderful event – it will be a lot of fun for everyone.”
