Angus Monfries, Port Adelaide Football Club
Cure 4 Cystic Fibrosis is delighted to have former AFL and Port Adelaide Football Club star Angus Monfries as Patron of the Foundation. Having seen people close to him living with cystic fibrosis, Angus has a personal interest in, and understanding of the disease.
Of his appointment as our patron, Angus said, “CF is a debilitating illness that affects a great number of young Australians. A cure for CF would give those suffering from it today a brighter future and a fuller life”.
Emmah Evans, CF Mummy and Cure4 CF Ambassador
Mother, Mentor, Model, Motivational Speaker, Author, TV personality, Inspirational Blogger and Ambassador for Cure4 Cystic Fibrosis- Emmah Evans is a young lady who at just 28, has seemingly done it all. And while battling the daily challenges of living with the life threatening effects of cystic fibrosis.
During Emmah’s life she has faced many major obstacles, but she has overcome them. She uses these experiences to grow, share with others and make a difference, and in doing so she has proved to herself, and those around her, that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. Emmah is passionate about raising awareness, motivating, inspiring and giving hope and we are so pleased she has joined Cure4 Cystic Fibrosis as an Ambassador.
Jamie Sach, Penfolds Global Ambassador
In November 2015, Cure4 Cystic Fibrosis welcomed Jamie Sach as our newly appointed Ambassador. Jamie who most would agree has arguably one of the best jobs in the world as Global Ambassador for iconic South Australian wine Penfolds, is looking forward to putting his profile and voice to good use as he joins us in a very personal fight to find the cure for cystic fibrosis.
“Cystic fibrosis is a cruel genetic disease that greatly diminishes the quality of life of its sufferers and places onerous responsibilities on the families and carers that support those afflicted. Our South Australian research team are employing cutting edge technology to develop a cure for CF. To succeed they require substantial funding. I’m determined to do all I can to help raise the money required to accelerate their research into an effective cure as quickly as possible. Together we can beat CF once and for all.”
Mae Johnson, Cure4CF Youth Ambassador
My name is Mae Johnson, I am 16 years old. I was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when I was born and even though it makes my life more challenging I am determined to live life to the fullest and achieve all of my dreams.
I enjoy playing netball, reading and singing. I really like school and I have to work hard to keep up as I miss a lot of days because of hospital and illness. I want to be a brain surgeon when I grow up so I need to keep working hard and doing my best to achieve this dream.
I was delighted to become Cure4 Cystic Fibrosis’ first youth ambassador as I would love to raise awareness and help to find a cure for my disease. There are a lot of people who have never heard of CF and if I can help tell people about the disease and how it affects my life then maybe, we can raise enough money to find a cure.
