New Director Announcement

Cystic Fibrosis Community Care (CFCC) is pleased to announce that Mr. Cody Sheehan, has been elected as an independent non-executive director of CFCC.

After suffering with cystic fibrosis for three decades, Cody underwent a double lung AND liver transplant in the same 17-hour surgery thanks to not only both surgical teams from St Vincent’s and RPA Hospitals, but his donor as well.

Cody enjoys fundraising and public speaking. He has had considerable experience working with/ liaising with non- profits from the Australian CF National and State organisations to international non-profits (More Than Just Me) and other diseases as well. This also includes assisting and coordinating large scale fundraising events from gala balls to film releases and movie nights. Cody also got Marvel approval for his own CF Avengers movement- a global team of CF sufferers whose sole purpose is to bring hope and joy to those with the disease.

Cody works at Wellshare, a Co-Working space for health professionals with several locations across Sydney. He is the President of Australian Heart and Lung Transplant Association (AHLTA) and has previously served in the Cystic Fibrosis New South Wales Board, prior to amalgamation with Cystic Fibrosis Victoria.

Cody’s lived experience of cystic fibrosis, together with his deep understanding of our community will make him an important addition to our Board, and we are delighted to welcome Cody to CFCC.
