Cystic Fibrosis Community Care
At Cystic Fibrosis Community Care (CFCC) we work with and support people living with cystic fibrosis, their families and carers. Our aim is to raise much needed awareness and funds during the month of May which is 65 Roses month. CFCC provides a range of programs and support services that will help people with CF now and into the future.
The 65 Roses story dates back to 1965 when a young boy pronounced cystic fibrosis (CF) as 65 Roses. Since then, 65 Roses has been synonymous with our cause and the rose has been adopted as the national symbol for CF.
In May there are a number of ways you can help CFCC. Tell your contacts about us and the work we do, approach your local café to donate, create your own fundraiser or take a challenge involving the number 65.
In 2019 we are aiming to raise $40,000 to enhance the programs and services that support people living with CF in NSW and Victoria. Money raised in each state will stay in that state. With your help we can make a real difference. For more information click on the photos below.
