Give the biggest gift this festive season

Christmas 2023 baby

Will you help give the CF community the biggest gift of all?

A small gift from you could lead to the biggest gift of all – lives unlimited by CF

Donate today

Past research, funded by our incredible supporters, has transformed the lives for many in our community. We’ve made some incredible progress. But we still have so much to do.

Will you join us this festive season to help fund more CF research and help change more lives?


Last year, you told us your CF research priorities. Your priorities help us decide what research we fund and ultimately drive us towards new discoveries and treatments that matter most to people with CF and their families.

The research community has been inspired by the priorities you and the CF community have identified, and because of this we've received more exciting proposals than ever before. We need your help to be able to fund as many of these incredible research projects as we can.

The smallest gift from you could be the biggest gift to babies with CF, like Baker.

We hope that Baker’s happy and healthy and does whatever he dreams of. With modern technology progressing in leaps and bounds, you never know what’s around the corner. A life unlimited for us would be waking up without worry.

  • Caroline and Baker's story

    "I’m Jewish, my parents are Jewish, and my brother’s actually a Rabbi in New York. With Hanukkah, you have the menorah, which is the candles, and 20 years ago, my mother petitioned for a menorah to be outside the Cliffs Pavilion Theatre in Southend, where we lived at the time! If it wasn’t for my mum, it wouldn’t be there.

    "Baker wasn’t old enough to appreciate Hanukkah last year, but now he’s a little older we’ll be taking him to the menorah lighting in Southend because it's so close to my family, and it’s very special to us. We probably won’t do the eight nights of Hanukkah, but we’ll do one night and have a little present."

  • Morag and Jacob's story

    "It's an exciting time for advancements in CF with all these new amazing medications and the continuous research efforts, so it's made me very hopeful for a cure for cystic fibrosis.

    "I hope Jacob has a bright, long, fulfilled life and will outlive us."

  • Swapnali and Aslesha's story

    "We celebrate Diwali with a lot of love. We burn diyas (oil lamps), make rangolis (colourful drawings), and wear new clothes over the three to four days that the festival lasts. We do a puja, which is a prayer ceremony, for Goddess Laxmi, which happens in the evening. We also decorate our entire house with lights and diyas!

    "Usually, my Mum and Dad and some relatives visit us for Diwali. They’re all aware of Aslesha’s CF, so if anyone is unwell, they know not to come over."
