Cystic Fibrosis a cause for casual cash

In this month’s edition we cover the fight for cystic fibrosis. Earlier this year we were saddened to hear the news that little Macie had been diagnosed with CF. Macie is the granddaughter of Danny Caulfield, one of our long time associates.

Little Macie was struggling to gain weight and had a nasty cough that she couldn’t shake. Christie, Macie’s mother, knew something wasn’t quite right. When she was five weeks old she received a call from the GP advising that the results were back from the heel prick test (taken at birth) that confirmed Macie had CF.

Read about all that Macie’s family are doing to raise awareness for the illness and how AFS is helping show their support.
