CYSTIC FIBROSIS DAY:
65 Roses Day is the National Fundraising Day for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland and takes place on Thursday April 13th.
Cystic Fibrosis National Awareness Week takes place from Monday April 10th to Sunday April 16th.
CF Ireland are looking for support to help raise funds and increase awareness of Cystic Fibrosis throughout the country. There are 3 ways you can help support CF Ireland during CFI National Awareness Week
- Buy a Purple Rose, Volunteer or Donate. '65 Roses' is how some children first learn to say 'Cystic Fibrosis'.
CF Ireland depend on voluntary income and donations to provide services and supports to people with CF in Ireland. 65 Roses Day is a major fundraising campaign and helps CF Ireland fund the services they
provide such as exercise grants, transplant grants, bereavement counselling etc.
Raising a child with special needs does not take a special family, it Makes a Special Family.
