Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is one of the most common life-shortening genetic conditions affecting Australians. It primarily affects the lungs and the digestive systems. People with CF undergo a grueling daily treatment regime to stay healthy.Living with CF can be lonely and isolating, people with CF are not encouraged to socialise with each other due to the risk of cross-infection. Entry is Free, however, donations raised from this exhibition will help us to provide support to the children and adults living with cystic fibrosis (CF) in our WA community. With your help, we can continue to provide important services and contribute to critical CF research.You will find donation tins at the exhibition, or you may prefer to show your support via our Official 65 Roses Fundraising Page.
