This is a documentry that a fellow CFer posted about and I wanted to bring awareness to its cause!!

65_RedRoses is a Canadian feature documentary that takes an unflinching look into the life of Eva Markvoort as she battles a fatal genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis (CF). At 23, Eva needs a double lung transplant to live. Unable to be around other patients with the same disease, Eva turns to the internet where she forms a strong connection with two American girls in different stages of CF. As the film follows Eva on her journey to getting new lungs, we witness how her online friendship with Meg and Kina withstands the tests of both time and distance.The film was directed and produced by Vancouver filmmakers, Philip Lyall and Nimisha Mukerji. The film plans to have major festival play throughout 2009 so please visit the facebook group regularly for updates on when and where the film is screening. The film’s social agenda is to spread awareness about Cystic Fibrosis and the importance of organ donation.Check out the 65_RedRoses trailer at our official website:
