We were so excited to receive an extra special donation from the wonderful ladies who play gold at the Mount Lawley Golf Club.  CCF were fortunate to be named as the beneficiaries of their fundraising events throughout 2023. As a 100% volunteer run organisation, donations like this from caring community groups, help us greatly in continuing to support the researchers who are working hard to extend the lives of those living with Cystic Fibrosis.

Tea Tastic Tea Party

20 May 2023

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when the 2023 Grand Ball DVD was showcased to the more than 840 guests at the 2023 Capel Vale Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Grand Ball.

The DVD reflects on the 20 year story of our charity.  A story of love, heartbreak and hope.

Thank you Dean and Sharon from the amazing Lomax Media team who voluntarily gave their time and expertise to tell our story with the care and compassion it deserved.

A familiar face to take centre stage!

16 May 2023

A familiar face and voice will take centre stage the Capel Vale Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Grand Ball this Saturday, May 20.

MAFS contestant and prominent cystic fibrosis advocate Lyndall Grace will be the keynote speaker and will also sing in front of more than 840 guests at the Crown Grand Ballroom.

The event has had a three-year hiatus due to Covid but the Cystic Fibrosis community will celebrate its return which coincides with 20 years of fundraising by the volunteer team.

“Our grand ball will be a chance to unite to celebrate the success of our charity and the many advancements in research over the past 20 years,” CCF Chair Wendy Endebrock-Brown said.  “However, this will also be bittersweet reunion because our community has experienced ongoing heartbreak in recent years with the deaths of previous keynote speakers, advocates and friends Jayde Kinane, Adam D’Aloia and Coen Ashton.

“These beautiful young people died far too soon because of this disease and we will never stop supporting research while Cystic Fibrosis continues to claim young lives and devastate families.”  Mrs Endebrock-Brown was one of the founding parents of children with CF who started fundraising 20 years ago and set up the charity.

Lyndall said she jumped at the opportunity to share her story in the hope of boosting research funds.  “The beauty of Conquer Cystic Fibrosis is that it is 100 per cent volunteer run so all the funds go to research to help extend lives like mine,” she said.  “If it wasn’t for medical breakthroughs, there is no chance I’d be standing here today.

“I grew up believing I’d die before my 26th birthday but I’ve been well cared for by the WA CF specialists here and I recently gained access to the revolutionary medicine Trikafta.  “I am not only alive because of it but I now have a tangible hope of growing old.  “However, despite the advances, we still have a long way to go and the deaths of friends with CF are tragic reminders of why we have to keep supporting the research into the vast complications of this disease.  “The death of my beautiful friend Jayde Kinane at just 21 years of age should never have happened so for her and others, I will do all I can to keep having our community’s voice heard.

“When I take to the stage to sing and speak at the ball, it’s not just about my personal battle with this disease but all those alongside me and all those who come after me.”

In 2017, Lyndall opened the event singing a touching rendition of ‘Like I’m Going to Lose You’ by Meghan Trainor.  Funds raised by CCF go to the Telethon Kids Institute, Institute of Respiratory Health and Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust. The charity has also purchased a $280,000 machine for Fiona Stanley Hospital to make lung transplants safer.

A True CCF Angel

8 January 2023

We would like to share with you the outcome of an extra special fundraiser which honours a beautiful Bunbury grandmother who was entirely devoted to her family. Ann Lloyd sadly passed away on Boxing Day at the age of 70. Her friend and colleague set up a GiveNow In Memoriam page which has raised almost $5,000.00 in Ann’s honour.

Ann’s youngest grandson Connor has CF and she took every opportunity to support our cause and raise awareness for more life-extending research.  Her last opportunity to support Connor in lieu of flowers is a bittersweet one but her loved ones know it’s exactly what she would have wanted. 🌹

Pictured below is Ann with her grandson Connor.

Walk the Talk 2022 – Postponed

12 March 2022

Unfortunately due to the recent high cases of COVID-19 in Western Australia, and considering the health and safety of you, our loyal Conquer Cystic Fibrosis supporters, we have decided to postpone the 2022 Walk the Talk walk for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis.

We feel that it is important that we keep our supporters safe, and importantly give you the confidence to join in and mingle amongst other people on the day. While the event is a COVID 19 safe event with every precaution being put in place, we feel that changing the date of the event is important given these unprecedented times.

As a result the Walk the Talk walk for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis will rescheduled to take place later in 2022.

Lawn Bowls Sundowner for CCF

Sunday 23 January 2022

On Sunday 23rd January Lara Vlahov and her family held a Sundowner Lawn bowls event at the Cambridge bowls club. The event was a huge success and they were able to raise an amazing $18,000.00 on the day.

The money raised at the event has been divided between Conquer Cystic Fibrosis (CCF) and The Cancer Council.  These are two causes very close to Lara and her family’s heart.

The wonderful Jayde Kinane was Lara’s cousin and although she is no longer with us her family continue to raise money and do all that they can to support CCF and those impacted by Cystic Fibrosis.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone involved in organising this event.

Our Year in Review

1 January 2022

It’s been another rollercoaster year but, with your support, we have continued on our mission to Conquer Cystic Fibrosis.  While we were not able to host the Capel Vale Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Grand Ball this year, we were fortunate to be supported by Bingo for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis and a range of other fundraising activities including:

  • The annual Dare to Care Swim
  • The inaugural ‘Walk the Talk’ Walk
  • Gabriella’s 60km walk in honour of Jayde Kinane
  • The 70km Cape to Cape walk by Holly and her friends
  • The CCF Angels giving program
  • Ascot Race Day event
  • Little Cotta Co. pop up shop in honour of Jayde Kinane
  • Busselton-Geographe Bay Rotary Club Golf Day and cocktail party on the jetty
  • Plant selling by Bella Fairbrass
  • Kalea Co fundraising support by Kiah
  • Crazy Hair Day at Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School
  • The wedding of Kate and Peter
  • Leanne’s Christmas Wreath making

Through this support, and the support of very generous individual donors, CCF has been able to establish and contribute to very significant research projects, including the following:

  • $200,000 to the Institute for Respiratory Health as part of our $1m commitment to CF adult research.
  • $100,000 to the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust to fund two CF research grants (respiratory and gastroenterology)
  • $200,000 to the Telethon Kids Institute for a research project targeting the window of vulnerability in young children with CF.
  • $7500 to Inc for the development of online resources to support people with CF, their caregivers and CF physiotherapy.
  • $83,000 to establish the Anna Tai fellowship. The Anna Tai fellowship will ensure the CF and Bronchiectasis Research Group can continue to investigate how patients may benefit from novel drug therapies, diagnostic imaging techniques, molecular epidemiology of infection and psychosocial interventions right here in WA. The group are recognised as world leaders and have an extensive collaborative network.

CCF was also able to donate $10,000 to Cystic Fibrosis WA for support services.

The projects we have been able to support all have the potential to drastically improve CF care and outcomes worldwide and extend lives.

In reflection, the loss of our beautiful advocate and friend Jayde Kinane in October left us all devastated but more determined than ever to continue on our mission.  CF is a cruel disease and, ultimately, we need a cure.

So as we begin 2022 we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you and wish you all a very Happy New Year.


The Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Christmas Appeal

17 November 2021

Christmas is a time of celebration happiness and goodwill. More importantly it is a time of bringing hope to the 3400 Australians and their families living with Cystic Fibrosis.

No Cystic Fibrosis story is the same… however, this condition is life-limiting and relentless. Our amazing group of volunteers strive for a world where all children can live a life unaffected by Cystic Fibrosis.

This Christmas, we need your support more than ever.  Cystic Fibrosis never takes a break, and neither do we.

You can help us to continue our fight against Cystic Fibrosis by making a donation to the Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Christmas Appeal. With your generous support we can continue to fund the lifesaving research needed to find the cure.

Pictured below is baby Charlie (who has Cystic Fibrosis) with his big sister Matilda.  Charlie has had a rough start to life with surgeries on bowel blockages and IV’s for respiratory infections. He still manages to smile though and is adored by his big sister.

We cannot thank you enough for your ongoing support during what has been very challenging times for everyone.

From all of us at Conquer Cystic Fibrosis we wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

Festival of Frights! Cancelled

Friday 29 October 2021

We are so sorry to report that we have made the difficult decision to postpone next Friday’s Festival of Frights Halloween event.

We are looking at holding another event at the Perth City Farm in the months ahead but to date no firm plans have been made. All tickets sold for the festival of frights have been refunded.

The CCF team are grieving right now and we need time to pay tribute to our beautiful Jayde who tragically passed away on Monday 18 October 2021.

Please be assured though, as Jayde would have wanted, we will be back soon hosting events to continue raising the funds to support life-extending research into the devastating disease cystic fibrosis is.

We thank you for your understanding.

Jayde you truly were a CF warrior.  We will all miss you so very much x

Gastrointestinal focus for new CCF Grant

29 May 2021

Through the support of our wonderful donors and supporters, over the past 19 years, we have donated almost $1M to the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust.

The Trust enlists a scientific panel, with consumer support, to assess applications by researchers to determine where this money is best spent. Some projects funded through the Trust are now being used globally in clinical care and we are proud to be a part of this.

This week, grant submissions were called to spend our most recent donation. This is the second time we have funded a gastro-intestinal research project because it is an area of great need. It is currently the only CF-specific GI grant opportunity in Australia. However as our community knows, the digestive pain, surgeries and lifelong GI complications are an immense burden on the 3400 Australians living with CF. CF is more than a lung disease and that is why we are proud to support more research in this field.


Conquer CF (GI) Innovation Grant 2021

This grant is looking for ‘big thinkers’ with great innovative ideas who will make a difference through research to the CF community.  It is open to post-doctoral researchers, scientists, clinicians, medical practitioners, nurses and allied health currently working in the area of cystic fibrosis (CF) or proposing to work in CF research in the gastro-intestinal (GI) field. GI is defined here to include any part of the GI tract, as well as directly related issues such as nutrition and digestion, and closely associated organs and tissues such as the pancreas, liver and kidney. The researchers will have completed their studies in CF or a related area within the past five years.

The Conquer CF (GI) Innovation Grant will allow a CF researcher to explore novel concepts at the initial feasibility stage. Innovative applications relating to GI aspects of CF are encouraged, even those lacking pilot data. The grant aims to allow the researcher to generate sufficient data within the one-year grant period to be in a position to apply for additional support from an appropriate funding body to continue the research.

The recipients of the Conquer CF (GI) Innovation Grant are required to provide progress reports on their research to CFA every six months. In addition, and where appropriate, the recipient will be asked to make a presentation at a CFA conference (held every two years) in Australia.

The maximum amount awarded for the Conquer CF Innovation Grant will be $50,000. The actual amount provided will be subject to approval of the applicant’s budget.

Applications can be made through the CFA website and must be received no later than 5pm AEST on Friday, June 25, 2021.


Bunbury Car Dealers do it again…

26 May 2021

This generous group doesn’t ask for recognition but we can’t let this donation pass without acknowledgment. We would like to extend a big thank you to the car dealers in Bunbury and all their supporters who contributed to the wonderful golf day held in March, 2021.

We are incredibly grateful for your ongoing support.

Fundraising success in Busselton & raffle results

7 May 2021

The Rotary Club of Busselton Geographe Bay has handed our charity a cheque for $14,000. These funds were raised through a golf day and cocktail party held on the end of the stunning Busselton Jetty in March. We are so incredibly grateful for this support. We thank all those who supported this event including its major sponsors the Professionals Real Estate Busselton and William Barrett and Sons. It means so much to our community to know you are behind us in this fight to make Cystic Fibrosis a manageable or, ultimately, curable disease. Conquer Cystic Fibrosis South West coordinator Taryn Barrett said that at a time when many events have had to be cancelled due to Covid-19, the generous support of the Busselton community was greatly appreciated.  “We are overwhelmed by the support of this Rotary Club and the wider Busselton community,” she said.

“There are more than 3400 Australians fighting this devastating disease every day and for locals impacted, it means the world to know that the community is behind us.”

Attendees were inspired on the evening by a speech delivered by Cystic Fibrosis advocate Jackie Fraser, just four months after her double lung transplant.

The winners of the raffle held as part of the fundraising initiatives were:

1. Ron Mildenhall

2. Natalie pretlove

3. Fiona Byrne

4. Malcolm Craig

5. Craig Wilson

Rotary Golf Day and Cocktail Party

Friday 19 March 2021

We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone that attended and supported the Rotary Club of Busselton-Geographe Bay’s golf day and cocktail party for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis.

Many hours of work went into this event by a number of people and without the support of everyone involved the event simply could not have happened.  A number of businesses and individuals contributed in various ways to the success of the event and assisted to keep costs to an absolute minimal.

The golf day for CF began in 2017 through the inspiration of Ross Johnston and with the support of Cystic Fibrosis WA in Perth.   After a hiatus in 2020 a new partnership was formed with the support of Taryn Barrett and Jackie Fraser from Conquer Cystic Fibrosis South West which lead to this year’s event.

A number of items were donated to raffle and auction at the event, with donations also made to sponsor the golf holes.

While the final figure is not yet known as raffle tickets continue to be sold, at this point more than $10,500 has been raised from the event.

To everyone involved… Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

We could not achieve our fundraising goals without the support of local community events like the golf day.



Walk the Talk

Sunday 7 March 2021

On Sunday 7 March 2021 a fabulous day was enjoyed by all that participated in the inaugural “Walk the Talk for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis”.

Thank you to everyone that came along to the walk . We were all left feeling truly inspired after hearing our wonderful ambassador Jackie Fraser speak about her journey since receiving her new lungs in November 2020.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of the amazing CCF volunteers that helped out on the day, but would especially like to send a very special thank you to our beautiful volunteer Rita for all her hard work and determination in making this event a reality!  Through Rita’s determination and unwavering commitment she has raised an amazing $25,488.17 for our cause!

Thank you Rita from the bottom of all our collective hearts.

Gastrointestinal specific funding scheme for CF research

21 September 2020

We have some very exciting news to share with you.

Through your ongoing support CCF has been able to fund Australia’s first gastrointestinal-specific funding scheme for CF research with the first grant recently being awarded.

The winning submission for the inaugural $50,000 grant is a promising one.  Put simply, the project will examine gut inflammation, and the microbiome, and hopefully lead to the development of personalised treatments such as CF-specific probiotics.

The study is vital because both inflammation and poor microbiome health in CF are linked to poor growth, GI symptoms and increased cancer risk.  Despite these common complications in our community, no GI-specific therapies for those with CF currently exist.

As part of the study, stem cells obtained from gut biopsies from people with CF will be used to grow 2D and 3D organoid culture systems which aims to replicate real life (“mini guts”).

Lead researcher Associate Professor Keith Ooi said the study was a crucial step towards personalised therapies. “Successful personalised therapies would revolutionise CF treatments and other conditions subject to host-microbe interactions,” he said.

Prof. Ooi said there needed to be a more significant focus to be placed on GI clinical care and research and thanked the supporters of Conquer Cystic Fibrosis for making this grant possible.  “Historically gut issues were the primary cause of death in children with CF,” he said.  “The introduction of pancreatic enzymes and a high-fat and high-calorie diet played a vital part in enabling people with CF to live long enough to develop lung disease, which has become the primary cause of death.

“Understandably, the research focus has been focussed on the lungs in recent decades and CF-specific gastrointestinal research has taken a back seat.  “However, as the CF community well knows, gastrointestinal issues are vast, serious, life-limiting and at times embarrassing.”  As well as suffering from minimal research focus, Prof. Ooi said there was also a need for more gastrointestinal physicians to be embedded in CF clinics across Australia.

This is something Cystic Fibrosis Australia, our state organisations and our community can continue to keep in mind and lobby for in coming years.

Thanks to research, people with CF are living longer but it’s vital we keep investing in research to combat the vast array of complications this disease throws at us.
This grant is being delivered by the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the team at Cystic Fibrosis Australia for the vital support they have provided in making this research a reality.

Pictured below is lead researcher, Associate Professor Keith Ooi.

Forrest Family Foundation supporting CCF

17 September 2020

It’s been a tough year for the community and unfortunately this has had a significant impact on funding for research.

Despite having to cancel our major fundraising event for the year and a number of others, we are incredibly fortunate to still have generous donations coming in from our loyal donors.

Today we would like to thank the Forrest Family Foundation. We are so grateful to be able to keep the funding flowing to our dedicated researchers this year to ensure the beautiful young people living with Cystic Fibrosis get the chance to live life to the full with the dream of them growing old doing so.

From everyone at CCF we thank you so much for your generous support.

Dare to Care – Take Your Breath Away Swim

22 August 2020

On 22 August 2020 swimmers braved the cold to raise funds for vital Cystic Fibrosis research.

Thirty brave souls plunged into the 13 degree waters at Matilda Bay. They certainly reported their breath being taken away – a feeling the 3400 Australians with Cystic Fibrosis face each day.

Through their amazing efforts a total of $28,640.00 was raised from the event.

This money will ensure vital funds will go directly to Australian Cystic Fibrosis research.

This year our charity has had to cancel our biggest events so this result means the world to us, especially for the families that live with this disease every day.

Thank you to each and every one of you that participated in and made this event possible.  Heartfelt thanks especially to event organisers Gary and Caroline Claydon who put together another fantastic annual event which is now in its third year!!

All the money raised from the swim will support vital CF research.

Capel Vale Wines throws its support behind Conquer Cystic Fibrosis yet again!

Capel Vale Wines has thrown its support behind our cause yet again!

So please, fill your wine racks and your glasses.

Despite their own challenges in recent months, Capel Vale Wines, and the Pratten family, knew that the cancellation of the Capel Vale Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Grand Ball would be a huge blow to our fundraising efforts this year and they wanted to do something to continue to support us.

So, during June, 10% of the sale of each Capel Vale case sold online will be donated to Conquer Cystic Fibrosis to help us continue to fund the research needed to find a cure.

Simply use the coupon code CF2020.

Capel Vale CEO Simon Pratten said whilst many businesses were hurting, Western Australia was in an enviable position around the world.

“Capel Vale is proud to have supported the Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Ball for 17 years and feel that now more than ever those with CF need all the support they can get,” he said.“This is a cause close to our hearts and this is a charity fuelled by a passionate team of volunteers who deserve our support to continue.  It’s been a decade since my sister, Sally, passed away from CF and the social isolation standards imposed by the government brought back memories of self-imposed isolation when I had a cold or the flu in order to protect her”.

“Covid 19 has brought to light the impact that disease can have on lung function and how living with partial lung function and other complications is so debilitating. We want to support the researchers who are working hard to improve lives and ultimately, find a cure for this devastating disease.”

Don’t miss out click here to order yours today!

The 2020 Capel Vale Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Grand Ball has been cancelled.

This announcement will come as no surprise in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, however it breaks our heart to have to make it.

The 2020 Capel Vale Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Grand Ball has been cancelled.

The health of our loved ones with Cystic Fibrosis and the wider community is paramount and wecannot put anyone at risk.

What this means is that at least $200,000 will not be raised for CF research in Australia this year. Everyone at CCF is absolutely devastated by this especially given how desperately it is needed.

Our Committee will be considering alternatives to try to raise these research funds, without holding a Ball. For example, we may still hold our online silent auction with the generous donations we have already received this year.

We are a team of passionate volunteers committed to extending the lives of the 3400 Australians living with Cystic Fibrosis through research. This will continue but there is no doubt we will take a big hit this year.

If you were planning to attend or support our grand ball in any way, we would love it if you could consider making a donation that will help ensure we can continue to meet some of our ongoing commitments to researchers.

Please stay safe and please take precautions in coming days, weeks and months to protect our most vulnerable.

We need to take care of each other through social distancing and hand hygiene to survive 2020 together.

$50,000 donation kick starts global developments in CF care

Research of global significance is well underway here in WA and that is all thanks to your generosity!

We are thrilled to announce that we recently handed over $50,000 to the amazing CF research team at the Telethon Kids Institute. Those funds will fund an exciting Artificial Intelligence project which has the potential to drastically improve CF care worldwide.

We also received an update on the $20,000 we granted to the Institute last year which kick started an international collaboration of experts looking at a new molecular method which detects Aspergillus. It does so by looking for its DNA samples taken during a bronchoscopy. That project is showing immense promise and Dr Luke Garratt is leading this work with collaborators in Singapore who are now contributing more than $80,000.

For those who may not be aware, Aspergillus is the main fungus cultured in the airways of patients with CF and it is associated with airway damage and lung function decline.  Better detection leads to quicker and more effective treatment to reduce the damage this fungus inflicts.

The delivery of these funds and the success of the Institute’s research so far is great news for the 3300 Australians with Cystic Fibrosis.

One of those is 4-year-old Connor Barrett (pictured) whose future looks much brighter thanks to the clever minds and dedication of the Telethon Kids Institute team.

He is pictured with Development Manager Erin Hurson and world-renowned researcher and clinic Professor Stephen Stick to celebrate the big leaps forward.

However that’s not where the Conquer Cystic Fibrosis  contributions stop.

This year we are also granting funds to the Institute for Respiratory Health ($200,000), the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust ($100,000), Cystic Fibrosis WA ($10,000) and purchasing a state-of-art Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion machine which will improve the safety of transplants at Fiona Stanley Hospital ($280,000). More updates to come on those donations.

We are incredibly proud of these achievements considering we are a 100% volunteer-run charity started only 16 years ago right here in WA.

Thank you for making a difference.

A very BIG Thank You!

2019 WA Volunteer of the Year Awards

The amazing Peter Manwaring was recently announced as one of 10 finalists in the Community News – Perth – People’s Choice ‘Spirit of Volunteering’ Award for the 2019 WA Volunteer of the Year Awards.

Peter, along with his wife Lisa, are two of the biggest supporters of our cause.  They have no direct family connection to Cystic Fibrosis yet they spend countless hours running Bingo sessions for hundreds of participants two to three times each and every week.

Bingo for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis has grown considerably since its inception and has raised a whopping $1 MILLION for our cause!

The research this considerable funding allows has potentially life-saving implications.  It is funding research through the Telethon Kids Institute, Institute for Respiratory Health at QE11 and the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust.

So, while CF families are busy with treatments, appointments and hospital admissions, the Manwaring family and their volunteers are taking the load off by taking the lead. day in, day out, they grant the gift of hope to the entire Cystic Fibrosis community in WA.

This really is the true spirit of volunteering.

So please show your support and vote for Peter now

Why Trampolines Are Used in Treating CF

Bouncing on a trampoline is a fun and effective way for people with cystic fibrosis to exercise and also to help them clear mucus from their lungs. Of course, bouncing on a trampoline is just one part of other, wider cystic fibrosis treatment, but it’s definitely one of the more fun treatments out there! With campaigns like the Big Bounce attracting worldwide attention, fundraising and participation, we wanted to share some of the wonderful health benefits that bouncing on a trampoline can have for your child who is living with cystic fibrosis.

Exercise + treatment

Your child’s physiotherapy is probably one of the hardest parts of their treatment. Daily exercise and ongoing therapy are vital to minimise the mucus build up in their lungs and airways. While bouncing on a trampoline is not a traditional method of treatment, many young cystic fibrosis patients are using a trampoline to complement their treatment. Some physicians are also recommending a trampoline for their patients to help with enhancing their cardiopulmonary performance, and to improve their general wellbeing.

Improve mood and energy levels

When you are bouncing on a trampoline it is hard to feel anything except joy after just a couple of bounces! Hopping onto a trampoline and bouncing has the dual purpose of working to elevate your child’s mood and to enhance their energy levels. If you haven’t heard of trampolining as an optional part of your child’s treatment, please, of course, consult your physician first prior to rushing out and buying a trampoline!

It’s self-treatment

A lot of the time, your child living with cystic fibrosis will be going to doctors and physiotherapists and having to complete exercises with not a lot of control over what they do and how. This is just part of their care; but with trampolining, your child can play by themselves or with friends while at the same time getting some effective treatment. Bouncing on a trampoline is an active, independent exercise with results which are thought to be indistinguishable from traditional treatments like percussion treatment and chest physiotherapy. The duration of bouncing will change depending on your child’s treatment needs – so be sure to speak to your doctor or therapist if you are considering trampoline therapy for your child.

Remember, safe bouncing is vital

You probably remember the days where trampolines were rectangular, where the springs were a finger death trap, and the metal sides were an accident waiting to happen! But times have changed; there are safe trampoline options available on the market now. Companies like Vuly make springless and safe-spring trampoline models for safe bouncing. And of course, always supervise your kids whenever they are playing outside on the trampoline for their safety.

2017 CFA Patron’s Consumer Advocate Award

20 November 2017

Today one of our wonderful Committee members and volunteers Taryn received a prestigious Cystic Fibrosis Australia advocacy award.  Her award was  presented by the Governor General of Australia, Sir Peter Cosgrove, at his Kirribilli residence. Some of you will remember Taryn as she was the guest speaker at the 2017 Capel Vale Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Grand Ball.

Taryn is passionate about the need for more medical research into Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and is also a strong advocate for placement of Orkambi on the PBS. She has spoken out loudly and widely and said that she accepted the award yesterday with a heavy heart because the lengthy negotiations to get Orkambi on the PBS appear to be going backwards.

Taryn said “this award is an opportunity to speak out about the need for changes to the processes for funding breakthrough medicines, not only fo Orkambi but those in the pipeline. Medicines which treat the underlying cause and that may well lead to CF becoming a manageable disease in the foreseeable future”.

Taryn does all that she does for her son Connor and the 3300 other Australians living with Cystic Fibrosis.

All of us at CCF would like to extend our congratulations to Taryn on this wonderful achievement.

Christmas Puds for CCF

6 November 2017

Now this puts the ‘fun’ back into fundraising.

Last year several people supported CCF by hosting a Christmas pudding bake off in their own home. All you need to do is gather up all your friends, enjoy some bubbly and make your Christmas delights together! Or if you prefer to mix liquids rather than solids, perhaps a Christmas cocktail night might be the go. Just get festive and help our greatest Christmas wish come true while doing so. We have the pudding recipe sheet and simple tips to host your event all ready to send out to you. Simply email us to express your interest.

Simple as that!

In loving memory of Coen Ashton

18 October 2017

This week we were devastated to learn of the passing of Coen Ashton.

Cystic Fibrosis is a cruel disease and on Wednesday afternoon sadly it claimed yet another young life.  Coen was 20 years old and one of the greatest, brightest and most entertaining advocates for Cystic Fibrosis research and organ donation. We were so lucky to meet him when he flew over to Perth to be the guest speaker at the 2014 Capel Vale Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Grand Ball.

Coen amazed and inspired the nation with his quick wit, smile, courage and passion.  He was a tireless advocate for organ donation and twice jet skied along the Murray River to sign up donors.

We extend our deepest condolences to Coen’s loved ones at this very sad time.

Footy fun for CCF.

16 September 2017

On 16 September 2017 a very special event was held down in Margaret River to raise money for River Angels and CCF.

The two captains of the teams are closely affected by CF. The AMR Hawks Masters Captain Joel Lawrence has a daughter, Arrabella, with CF.  She flipped the coin today and is a little living legend. The captain of the AMRzons, Lloydy, has a 2-year-old nephew with CF.  These children will have a bright future and longer life if the research continues.  It’s events like these that can make a big difference.

Thank you to everyone who made this happen.

We could not achieve these amazing result with your wonderful support.

From all of us at CCF we thank you!!!

Research Study

15 May 2017

Researchers at the Flinders University and the Cystic Fibrosis Airway Research Group at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital (WCH) in Adelaide are conducting an online survey study to examine perceptions towards airway gene therapy for Cystic Fibrosis (CF).

Their aim is to examine the perceptions towards airway gene therapy for CF among people with the disease, their families, and members of the general public. This knowledge is vital in the lead up towards clinical trials (beginning in 5+ years) as it will enable researchers to mitigate factors that might impede the success of those trials. Cystic Fibrosis Australia secured funding for this research through the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust.

The study has ethics approval from the Social and Behavioural Research Ethics Committee at Flinders University and is being conducted with the support of the School of Health Sciences at Flinders University.
