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.
