How time flies
!, The 4th. season of our activities was opened just last November 1999 and after
5 successful months we can declare once again that - we did it!
the 5 month of the last season, 7 groups of almost 100 CF patient visited us and
enjoyed their stay at our center at the Dead Sea.
To all those who visited
us we would like to say - it was a pleasure to host you!
informed you in the past, we are pleased to report that in most cases whether
through subjective and/or objective evidence, there were improvements in lung
functions, well being and quality of life of the patients.
We have improved
some lessons from the past and have implemented it very quickly. A new sport teacher
joined us recently and the last group took part in a video film we photographed
to enable us to present our activities in this magnificent area - the Dead Sea
- on several occasions like CF Congress, CF Days etc.
We have been very
busy in continuing the researches we began, but we also collected new date regarding
the quality of life of CF patients, and the influence of the climate at the Dead
sea area, regarding the microbes that CF patient are carrying.
program for the next months includes participating in the XIIIth. International
CF Conference in Shtocholm Sweden in June 2000 and to visit and meet as many friends
and Associations in Europe as possible to tell them more about the legend called
the "Dead Sea".
"Johannes geht es so gut wie schon Lange nicht mehr. Lungenfunktion
ist noch besser geworden... "
("it never was so good to Johannes. His lung
function are even better..."
