About Us

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition, primarily affecting the lungs and digestive system. People with CF develop an abnormal amount of excessively thick and sticky mucus within the lungs, airways and digestive system. This causes impairment of the digestive functions of the pancreas and traps bacteria in the lungs resulting in recurrent infections leading to irreversible damage. Lung failure is the major cause of death for someone with CF. Many sufferers also have CF related diabetes due to pancreatic complications. CF ACT relies on donations and corporate support to deliver these essential services to people with CF and receives no government funding. CF ACT is predominately run by a volunteer committee supported by a full-time staff member.

How your donation will help

The CF ACT budget is expended on intervention support through the provision of breathing, equipment, nebulisers, vitamin supplements, and lifestyle support to assist our members with CF to breathe, digest and maintain their best health to keep them out of the hospital system. We only help with items essential to health, part of the required regime for CF Sufferers and that are not funded through the PBS.
