65 Roses Day, 27 May, is an opportunity for all Australians, not just those directly involved in the CF community, to get involved, participate, and help make a difference! Go to www.65rosesday.org.au where you can buy merchandise, donate or just read stories and watch videos about inspirational people with CF who are seizing every day!
Funds raised go toward research and support, and ultimately a cure. $5 million has been raised over the last 12 years. During this time, the average life expectancy of a person with CF has increased by 10 years. In the 1980’s, average life expectancy was 17. Due to improved research, today it’s 37, but it’s still just 37.
