Life with CF can be tough. Unpredictable. Limiting. Every day there are different challenges to face, obstacles to overcome and barriers to break down.
That’s why this #CFWeek we want you to join us as we unite for a life unlimited.
For a life without the constant worry about meds and hospital appointments. Without the financial burden CF can bring. Without daily pain and exhaustion. A life without lack of awareness and misconceptions. A life without limits.
We'll be celebrating our amazing community by sharing stories of how, despite everything that's thrown our way, we're juggling the ups and downs of CF with courage and resilience.
Throughout the week, we’ll also have community takeovers on our social media channels, online events to join, and we’ll be sharing information, resources and support to help all of us lift the limits of CF.
And on Friday 17 June, you’re all invited to join us as we unite for Wear Yellow Day, our biggest and brightest fundraising day of the year.
“For me, a life unlimited would mean that I can travel the world, without having the constant worry. I want to start a family without worrying that my children are going to be motherless by my 45th birthday. I want to be able to laugh like crazy without having to stop for breath.”Francesca, person with CF
