Conquer Cystic Fibrosis

We're home from our adventure up the WA coast. 7 months and 20,000kms later. As dedicated Cystic Fibrosis advocates, we managed to raise over $3000 for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis by spreading awareness through social media posts and conversations with new people, encouraging people to donate along the way. Since being back in our hometown of Busselton, we've almost doubled that goal with some very generous donations. But that's not enough.

Cystic Fibrosis is a vicious, genetic condition affecting 3300 Australians. In CF there is a problem with the protein that controls the movement of salt and water in and out of the cells. Salt plays an important part in thinning out mucus in the body. Due to a lack of salt in the cells of someone with CF, mucus becomes thick and sticky. It then builds up in the organs, including the lungs and pancreas. This mucus clogs the tiny air passages in the lungs and traps bacteria. Repeated infections and blockages can cause irreversible lung damage and death. Life expectancy for a baby born today with Cystic Fibrosis is only 37. 

As newlyweds, we deserve a lifetime of happiness together and 37 just isn’t going to cut it.

With a cure just around the corner and 100% of donations going directly to Conquer Cystic Fibrosis, we have a new fundraising goal of $10,000!
