The relief of symptoms and the preservation of health among people with the genetic condition Cystic Fibrosis.


Dear CF

DEAR CF was created by a team of passionate people which Cystic Fibrosis is a part of. Amongst us we have members of all ages who have Cystic Fibrosis and lots of parents and family members. We believe in a holistic approach, mind body and soul. This website encompasses our Cystic Fibrosis journey, we hope we can help you on yours. We don’t claim to have all the answers, or to be professionals, we value the role of traditional drugs used in the correct context. We stand for clean living, treating the planet with respect as our home, an organic diet, an active body and an open mind.
“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

More than anything we stand for happiness and respect for each other. Knowledge is power and we hope we can empower you. We are all on a CF journey together, CF doesn’t define us, it is not who we are, it is merely a part of our bigger picture.


We believe in a fresh, organic, whole food diet. A diet that nourishes the mind body and soul. Amongst our members we have a variety of different diets, we encourage you to explore.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”

A healthy body needs proper nutrition and maintenance. We strive to explore the various options available for a healthy active body that is inclusive, interesting and most importantly strength giving. 

“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Attitude is at the heart of our ethos. Our members are all enquiring individuals looking for answers, pushing boundaries and exploring new things. We believe respect is key and that starts with each other.

“The earth has music for those who listen.”
George Santayana

We believe in nature, we believe in diet and more than anything we believe in the power of our mind. As a team we explore many areas and we are very excited to share this with you. We don’t stand for dictating, we encourage exploration, offer information and respect different ideas.

“I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.”
E.B. White, Letters of E. B. White
