I lost a cousin at a very young age to Cystic Fibrosis (CF). I have watched another cousin, Gary, pictured with me here suffer the same disease from birth until he was lucky enough to receive a double lung transplant. Although this transplant has prolonged his life, he now suffers from side effects resulting from years of the daily drug cocktails which have enabled him to live a “normal” life.
I admire Gary’s courage and tenacity and would like to do some fundraising and create more awareness of CF. My aim is to raise funds to go towards finding a cure for this insidious disease which is the most common genetically-inherited, life-shortening chronic illness affecting young Australians today. Currently, 1 in 25 people carry the CF gene and exhibit no symptoms of the condition.
I have decided that as part of a public appeal I intend to have my head shaved in the hope that this will give people another reason to contribute to my fund raiser. The shaving of my head, which currently has a good crop of hair, will take place at 7:30pm on 12th January 2018. I intend to stream the event with live video to Facebook. In the meantime, donations can be made at…
Please consider my request and donate what ever you are able, no matter how small the amount…every little bit will help. .
