What is CFStrong?
CFStrong is a website designed and built specifically for adults living with cystic fibrosis (CF). As it currently stands, due to the increasing age of the CF population, there is limited centralised access to specific CF information, resources, and insight into the lives of others living with CF in Australia. CFStrong aims to fill this gap. It is an online resource full of stories and information, and advice, and covers topics such as medical questions, employment, relationships, and much more.
As a result of huge advancements in the understanding and treatment of CF over the past 30 years, the quality of life and life expectancy for those living with CF has dramatically improved. There is still no cure for CF, but thanks to these leaps and bounds we have reached a new paradigm. CF is no longer a childhood disease, and people with CF are beginning to live longer, healthier, and more fulfilled lives.
Our challenge is to meet the changing needs of our growing adult CF community. CFStrong will help meet part of that need and complement our growing suite of services and support available for adults with CF.
