The Bedford area’s second annual Cystic Fibrosis Car Show is this Saturday. Donna Meador organizes the event to raise money for research on the disease that killed her son, Corey W. Flowers. Flowers was 26 when he died early last year. Meador chose the car show event because her son was a serious automotive enthusiast.
According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Web site, the disease is caused by a defective gene. This defect causes the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus.
