Thank you to all our generous donors who have helped us raise an incredible $70,000+ for cystic fibrosis!

Our matched giving goal has now been reached. While your donation won’t be doubled, they will still make a big difference and are greatly appreciated.

We've Reached Our Goal

We need your help to continue our vital support services and research funding for people living with CF. Our health system is under pressure. People with cystic fibrosis and their families need your help now more than ever. Thanks to support from some incredibly generous people in our community, your donation to Cystic Fibrosis WA will be DOUBLED for a short time only!

What a tremendous 24 hours!

Our goal for this CFWA Giving Day was to raise $40,000 in one day and thanks to our AMAZING community we reached that goal by 10am on Thursday 2 December. We were blown away when we reached our first bonus goal of $60,000 at 2pm. This result would not have been possible with our CF community and our wonderful matched givers. Philippa and Daniel Craigue reached out to us on Thursday to gift us additional matched funds, pushing our goal to $70,000.

There is still an opportunity to make your mark on the CF community, your donation will be greatly appreciated. All donations will help us continue to provide our vital support services to people living with Cystic Fibrosis in WA and go towards funding important research.

Little Charlie's Story

On 19 Jan 2021, our lives changed forever when our little boy Charlie was born and flown to Perth for emergency surgery At 28 hours old.

Charlie had 34 cm of his small intestine removed due to a complication we now know was caused by cystic fibrosis. Over the first 2 months of Charlie’s life, we spent 7.5 weeks at Perth Children’s Hospital recovering from two major surgeries. Unfortunately, at 6 months old Charlie began to struggle with digestive issues leading him to be transferred from Bunbury regional hospital to PCH for intervention. Then came the dreaded first winter and Charlie struggled to get over two nasty respiratory viruses which again sent him to hospital this time for oxygen support and additional treatments.

Charlie is now 10 months old and has spent close to four and a half months of his young life in hospital. This coupled with daily physiotherapy treatments, medication routines and outpatient appointments has stolen time away from our family. Time where we should be snuggling our new born baby cooing over his tiny toes, attending baby sensory classes and walks in the sunshine with his big sister. Instead we have befriended doctors, nurses and the PCH cafe staff, walked the children bridge to kings park countless times and have a suitcase packed as a ‘go bag’ for emergency trips to Perth.

Throughout this journey we have been so grateful to receive support from Cystic Fibrosis WA. They provide emotional and financial support for families just like ours and continue to advocate for the cystic fibrosis community.

This giving day please dig deep so that one day CF will stand for Cure Found.
