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…
