On Friday July 29th Kool Kidz Tarneit held their Crazy Hair Day, to raise some much needed donations and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis Victoria. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) primarily affects the lungs and digestive system because of a malfunction in the exocrine system, responsible for producing saliva, sweat, tears and mucus. There is currently no cure.
People with CF develop an abnormal amount of excessively thick and sticky mucus within the lungs, airways and the digestive system. The mucus causes impairment of the digestive functions of the pancreas and traps bacteria in the lungs resulting in recurrent infections which lead to irreversible damage. Lung failure is the major cause of death for someone with CF.From birth, a person with CF undergoes constant medical treatments and physiotherapy.
We are so proud to let our families know that we managed to raise $131.00 through donations and $62.50 through the selling of CF merchandise. That’s a total of $193.50
This was a fantastic effort and we would like to thank each and every family for their contribution. For more information you can visit http://www.cysticfibrosis.org.au/
