Fearless - A High Tea proudly supporting The Cure4CF Foundation
The Cure4CF Foundation is a non for profit organisation who support the work of The Adelaide CF Airway Gene Therapy Research Group as they work towards finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis Airway Disease.
Over the next 5 years, if 1.5 million can be raised for the group, it will bring their research to the next level where they can undergo human clinical trials.
Cystic Fibrosis is the most common life threatening hereditary illness affecting Australians today. It primarily effects the lungs and digestive system.
The average life expectancy is 37. A simple cold can be life threatening and lead to a chest infection which as a result can lead to 2-3 weeks of hospitalisation undergoing intravenous treatment to help fight the infections. CF Suffers can also take up to 40 pancreatic tablets a day to help digest the food as well as other forms of tablets, inhaled antibiotics and medications as well as regular physiotherapy all to remain healthy. It is an invisible disability, very common yet still unknown.
Emmah Evans, Cystic Fibrosis fighter, motivational speaker, author and ambassador for The Cure4CF Foundation has set herself a goal to raise $5000 and if reached, she will face her ultimate fear and dive with the sharks.
This high tea is to conclude the online fundraiser and a chance for new supporters to attend, with Linda Jones the Executive Officer of The Cure4CF Foundation speaking about their vision and goals.
Guests will then be inspired by hearing Emmah talk about her life with Cystic Fibrosis and the journey so far and how she lives with a chronic illness as well as being an active mother to two children.
