About the website

In order to meet the needs of people suffering from cystic fibrosis we created a website which allows to raise funds for treating those in need.

We realize that the treatment is very expensive. Medicine, physiotherapy, rehabilitation, specialistic support as well as frequent visit in clinics. All of these can be a huge financial burden for the sick.

That is why we believe that raising the money allows to cover the costs, ensure safety and stability. They give hope for a bright and peaceful future.

 

 

The founder of the website is Polskie Towarzystwo Walki z Mukowiscydozą Oddział w Gdańsku (the Polish society of battling cystic fibrosis in Gdańsk)

The society has been taking care of people with cystic fibrosis for 25 years. We create and implement projects that help resolve problems accompanying the treatment and rehabilitation of people with cystic fibrosis. It also serves as a form of social education, legal and psychological support. We help our charges with their current problems and actions. We supervise managing their subaccount and enable collecting money which then finance the treatments, rehabilitation and in the most dire situations – lung transplant.

We seek those most in need.

We hand over collected money and supervise its expenditure.

Out on-going fund raiser

We managed to help 180 children from all over the Poland!

Together we have collected over 560 000,00 zł for our charges!

The course of disease differs between patients and so treatment of each person differs. There are however three basic elements present in almost each treatment plan. First of them is respiratory physiotherapy. It entails a series of different rehabilitation and respiratory procedures that are time- consuming and tiring, especially for those struggling with advanced stages of CF.
