Christmas Dedication: a letter to a loved one

Honour someone special by writing a message, sharing a photo and making a donation on our Dedication page

This time of year is usually a special time to spend with friends, family and loved ones. However, for those who have lost someone, it can also be an incredibly difficult time.

We understand the importance of remembering and celebrating your loved one's life, and how hard it has been to do this year. The Christmas Dedication page is a place for you to honour those you are remembering this Christmas, by writing a message, sharing a photo and giving a donation, to support our vital work in fighting cystic fibrosis.

The Dedication page will be available at the end of October. Please check back soon.

Everyone is welcome to leave a dedication, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, or whether you are remembering someone with CF or someone else.

If you want to tell us more about your dedication, you can email our In-memory Officer Daisy, who would love to speak to you. You can also take a look at other ways of remembering someone special, including setting up a Tribute Fund or holding an in-memory event.

Support our Christmas Appeal

With your dedication and donation, you can help us fund vital research that will help people with CF live longer, better quality lives.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has had a substantial impact on our income, due to the cancellation of the fundraising events we rely on. As a result, we have had to cut our research budget, which has meant making really tough decisions about which projects we can support. There are so many areas of research that are crying out for breakthroughs - we urgently need to find new medications to fight infections, as well as discover the causes of CF-related health conditions such as CF-related diabetes (CFRD). Your support can help fund these breakthroughs in research that will undoubtedly improve and save lives.
