Conquer Cystic Fibrosis
Sadly there is still no cure for Cystic Fibrosis but we are fighting to change that. As a 100% volunteer run organisation with no salary or administration costs we are able to channel every cent of the money raised to life-saving research and services.
Living With Cystic Fibrosis
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. People with CF develop an abnormal amount of excessively thick and sticky mucus within the lungs, airways and the digestive system. Lung failure is the major cause of death for someone with CF.
What is Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic Fibrosis is the most common life threatening recessive genetic condition affecting Australian children today. Currently life expectancy for someone with CF is 37... this is something we hope to change.
