“We (a group of Cystic fibrosis friends + a CF transmembrane related disorder warrior) came together in excitement for the release of @fivefeetapartfilm TOMORROW, Friday March 15. This will be the first time that CF has ever had representation as a plot line in a major motion picture! It has been such an incredible platform that has encouraged individuals, old and new, to the community to learn more, educate others, raise funds, and connect with more empathy. Since the launch of the Five Feet Apart marketing campaign, cystic fibrosis mentions increased by 113%. We hope as these numbers grow, the race towards the cure will as well!
So as we gear up for tomorrow’s anticipated launch, we wanted to share our own ways on how we can be safe from each other as movie-goers. For those who are unaware, CF patients are encouraged to stay six feet or further apart from one another if found in an area where another CF patient may be. This is to help avoid cross infection (the passing of infection from one to another). Germs can spread as far as 6 feet through droplets released in the air when people cough or sneeze.
By all means, we are not medical professionals. However, we are advocates wanting to do our best to keep our community and ourselves as safe as possible!” Want to help spread the message and awareness?:
