About Father's Day 2017

“Don’t do it for us. Do it for the dads just starting out!”

David Shaw and his son James are both doctors. Nothing truly amazing there.

But James, now 25 years old, has cystic fibrosis. He didn’t become a doctor to find a way to beat his CF. He did so despite of it.

And James is one of the lucky ones. He grew up in a caring, supportive family who always treated his daily battle as a challenge, not a curse. His dad David has been a driving force in that. So too of course has Jenny, James’ mum, but hey, this is all about Father’s Day!  

And with that day almost upon us, David and James are asking you to make a Father’s Day contribution to Cystic Fibrosis Australia. And like most mere males, they’ve left this appeal until the very last minute!

Anything you can spare is tax deductible and it will go into a series of exciting new research programs moving rapidly towards making key breakthroughs in dealing with and even eradicating CF.

That means today’s dads with children battling CF will have increasingly better ways to have healthier, happier childhoods. And for the dads of tomorrow, there’s a future transforming possibilities into revolutionary, practical outcomes.

Your dad already has all the ties, socks, cufflinks and beer mugs he could ever want.

For Father’s Day give dads like David – and every dad on their own personal crusade against CF - the present of a lifetime. 

About Cystic Fibrosis Australia

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) primarily affects the lungs and digestive system because of a malfunction in the exocrine system, responsible for producing saliva, sweat, tears and mucus.

There is currently no cure. People with CF develop an abnormal amount of excessively thick and sticky mucus within the lungs, airways and the digestive system. The mucus causes impairment of the digestive functions of the pancreas and traps bacteria in the lungs resulting in recurrent infections which lead to irreversible damage. Lung failure is the major cause of death for someone with CF.

We advocate on behalf of our members to gain better access to services, obtain information or resources. On a larger scale we have been involved in several national campaigns to increase the rights of all people with cystic fibrosis.
