Cystic fibrosis (also called CF) is the most common, life-limiting genetic condition affecting Australians.
CF causes an abnormal build-up of thick and sticky mucus in the lungs, airways and digestive system. Treatment requires intensive daily physiotherapy to clear the lungs and airways, countless medications and frequent hospitalisations.

Every donation received and every dollar raised no matter how big or small, has the power to make a difference to the life of someone living with cystic fibrosis. All funds raised for Cystic Fibrosis Community Care help us to deliver support services and improve the lives of people living with CF, their families and carers.
3,500 people are living with CF in Australia and 1 in 25 people carry the recessive CF gene change. Babies born today with CF can expect to live well into adulthood. There is no cure but advances in treatment and care are helping people to better manage their condition.
