Spaapen's Serve it Up For CF


Each Saturday night in May, Kate and Paul, who have a child with CF, held a dinner party for their friends and family to raise funds and awareness for CF.

Kate made the delicious three-course meals and Paul took care of the entertainment with a fun quiz. They’ve been hosting Serve It Up dinners annually for five years now, raising over $10,000 across the years.

What a fantastic achievement, thanks Kate and Paul!

CFWA Hospital Care Packs at PCH

Unfortunately, CFWA are no longer able to visit you at Perth Children's Hospital (PCH) unless you specifically request us to. This is due to legalities over privacy and confidentiality. We will continue to provide our much-loved hospital bags; however, these will now be delivered by one of the PCH respiratory team members.

If you haven’t received a bag or would like something different in your bag, please let us know so we can organise it for you.

We would still love to visit you so if you would like to catch up, please let us know and we can arrange a visit. We hope to see you soon. For more information or to organise a visit get in touch with Sharon at nurse@cfwa.org.au or on 08 6457 7333.
