Every day is a gift

Please consider donating today to support medical research to offer hope to everyone affected by cystic fibrosis and other lung diseases.

Clare’s Story

Clare Stace was born with cystic fibrosis, a genetic disorder that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. In Australia, one baby is born with cystic fibrosis every four days. The median life expectancy is under 50. There is still no cure.

Living with cystic fibrosis can be a lot for anyone to handle. Clare felt that she never had a break from it, not even on Christmas day.

How You’ll Make a Difference

Clare Stace was one of the fortunate ones as she received a life-saving double lung transplant.

Many will not survive because research into lung disease, including cystic fibrosis, is globally underfunded compared with other chronic health conditions. 

With your support, your gift of $50 will increase the chances of medical research breakthroughs and give the gift of life.

What you can do

Even if you don’t celebrate the festive season, we all have someone in our lives that has been impacted by lung disease or lost their battle with it.

The only way to advance medicine is through medical research. And the only way to advance research is with kind donations from generous people like you.

If you are able, please consider making a donation to ensure my committed research colleagues can find cures to lung diseases like cystic fibrosis.
