Cystic Fibrosis affects the body’s mucus production, affecting predominantly the lungs and pancreas, causing thick sticky mucus to build up, making breathing a daily struggle and impacting the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar. Sweat glands are also affected, as is digestion, due to the lack of enzymes needed to process food, which causes malnutrition. These are just a few health complications caused by this debilitating disease.
We want a cure in Ruby and Savannah’s lifetime. If you would like to help us extend life and see the Smart boys faces without beards, please donate now.
All funds raised go to Cystic Fibrosis SA, who offer support services to CF Sufferers and their families, also to CURE4CF Foundation, who fund research for a cure through Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Hospital Lung Lab. With the support of friends and family we have so far raised over $25,000 towards our fight against CF. By donating, even just the cost of a cup of coffee you will be helping us to know we are doing more than just treatments and meds in our fight for a cure against this earth shattering disease my family and many other CF families live with.
