A Clare mother is imploring the public to make a life changing donation on this annual ’65 roses day’.

It’s the flagship fundraiser for the genetic condition, Cystic Fibrosis which causes damage to the lungs, digestive tract and other organs and currently affects over 1,400 people nationwide.

At present just over half of those diagnosed live past the age of 40 and today’s initiative will aim to raise €300,000 to provide essential exercise equipment, counselling sessions and hospital facilities for patients and families.



Chair of the Clare CFI Branch, Crusheen based Deborah Kett, whose daughter Hannah was diagnosed at 14 months old, insists every contribution makes a major difference.
