Waiting for a Cure

Nutrition plays an important role in the treatment and management of cystic fibrosis. A person with cystic fibrosis is required to consume between 120% to 150% more than the daily amount of food recommended for their age and size. They consume a diet high in fats, salts and sugars and pay attention to the nutritional value of food to assist the absorption of vitamins to help fight infection.

On average one Australian child is born with cystic fibrosis every week. It is the most common life-shortening genetic condition in Australia. One in every 25 people carries the gene.

The treatment for cystic fibrosis is lifelong, ongoing and relentless. People living with cystic fibrosis take up to 80 pills a day, undergo tough physiotherapy regimes, hospital admissions several times a year and constantly cope with debilitating lung and gastrointestinal disease.

The average life expectancy for Australians living with cystic fibrosis is less than 38 years. There is still no cure for cystic fibrosis. When you are living with cystic fibrosis, every day matters.


Cystic Fibrosis Queensland

Cystic Fibrosis is a life-shortening, inherited disease that is usually diagnosed shortly after birth. The disease attacks the digestive system and slowly shuts down the lungs. There is no cure.

Cystic Fibrosis Queensland provides specialised support to people living with this chronic condition.

We must raise $2 million each year to provide essential services such as counselling, free equipment hire, home physiotherapy, accommodation, advocacy, education programs and support for children during hospital stays.

The fundraising efforts of people in our community is essential to allowing us to continue to help everyone with Cystic Fibrosis in Queensland.
