About Kay Cleland

My 8 year old Grandson has CF so for my 70th birthday my family and I are raising much needed funds for Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust. We ask that you bring no presents, only your presence is required. Their work is really important, and we want to do what we can to help. But there is only so much that the family can do. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to us. Together we can help Cystic Fibrosis Australia create the world we want to see.

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.
