Could you forgo your Coffee Fix to support Cystic Fibrosis?

Lets start by saying, we know how important coffee can be and we are not asking you to stop drinking this wonderful liquid gold.

BUT... did you know the average cost of a (barista made) cup of coffee in Australia is $4. That isn't even including the extra shot (or two) AND the alternate milk.

That $4 a day, over a 5-day working week, over the course of a month, certainly begins to add up! 

And this is only counting the one cup of coffee a day. 

By looking at how this Small Change can make Big Impact, certainly puts it into perspective! 

So we ask, could you forgo your Coffee Fix to support Cystic Fibrosis?

Recent Victories

  • Thanks to our donors, CFA has been able to campaign for change, most recently helping secure Trikafta on the PBS in Australia for those over the age of 12 years and carry at least one F508del mutation. 
  • This was done through media engagement, press releases, letters to parliament, letters to pharmaceuticals, collaborating with external stakeholders and the community, plus so much more.
  • CFA receives no Government Funding and is reliant on the support of the community. Your donation will help CFA: 
  • Increase quality of life, and life expectancy for someone with CF
  • Ensure voices of the CF community are heard at all levels, including nationally and internationally
  • Future-proofing the organisation so we can continue to strengthen our programs and support long-term outcomes for people with CF
  • Ensure essential research is taking place in the field of CF clinical practice, patient outcomes, extend life expectancy and ultimately work towards a cure.
