fragrance or sexy lingerie are all perfect for that special someone."

to ensure sizing and style. Various lingerie and sleepwear sets from Blush,
Calvin Klein and Esprit - From $19.00 - $60.00

women, Calvin Klein Euphoria for Men and Thierry Mugler, Etoille Collection -

    Celine Dion is Celebrity Patron of the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation. Cystic fibrosis is a multi-organ disease, affecting primarily the
lungs and the digestive system. The CCFF is a Canada-wide health charity, with
more than 50 volunteer chapters, that funds CF research and care. The CCFF is
a world leader in the fight against CF: the gene responsible for CF was
identified in 1989 by a Canadian-led team of CCFF-funded researchers. When the
CCFF was established in 1960, most children with CF did not live long enough
to attend kindergarten; today, half of all Canadians with CF may be expected
to live in their late 30s, and even beyond.
