Cystic Fibrosis Tasmania

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is one of the most common life-shortening genetic conditions affecting Australians.

It can affect every organ in the body, except for the brain. In particular, the lungs and the digestive systems are severely impacted.

People with CF undergo a daily gruelling treatment regime to stay healthy.

More than 25,000 Tasmanians carry the CF gene – the second highest rate in the world (behind Ireland).

Every 4 days a child in Australia is born with cystic fibrosis.

By participating in a 65 Roses activity you will be helping Cystic Fibrosis Tasmania raise money for vital life saving medical equipment and support programs.

Every dollar raised will go to helping Tasmanians with CF to live longer and healthier lives and to provide them with support and advocacy.

There are many ways that you can make a difference. Donate now, take a 65 Roses Challenge, create your own event or volunteer your time to sell merchandise or rattle a tin. Select your activity now...
