Everyday Rural Hero's for Cystic Fibrosis

Loving the spunk of the these two rural wonder women.
Read their story and donate here to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Australia


We are raising funds for Cystic Fibrosis Australia by entering in "The Great Escape" Cystic Fibrosis Car Rally in September 2013.
This is a cause really close to our hearts, we really want to make a difference for the treatment of people with CF, and the funds we raise will all go towards research into CF and to find a cure.
My son Charlie is a busy 7 year old boy living with CF in rural NSW, and it is his experience of the disease and his ongoing determination to make life great that has inspired us to enter the rally and raise the much needed money for CF Australia.
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most common, genetically acquired, life-shortening chronic illness affecting young Australians today. It primarily affects the lungs and the digestive system, however, it also affects a number of other organs and systems. Complications increase with age, requiring ever increasing levels of (self) care and support. On average one in 25 people carry the CF gene (most of whom are unaware they are carriers).
The rally begins on the 9th of September and goes for 10 days, starting at Mudgee in NSW and then into the QLD outback, over to Rainbow beach and finishes in Nelson Bay on the 19th of September.
