The community in Yarrabah are banding together with Australian skin care brand MooGoo to fight the preventable disease in the community. MooGoo have donated a year’s worth of body wash for every household in Yarrabah.

Tanya Wright, Parent of a child with Cystic Fibrosis, talking about how the life-changing cystic fibrosis treatment is out of reach for desperate Aussie families. CF drug Trikafta is now approved for children aged 6-11, but is not yet listed on the PBS, costing Aussies upwards of $250,000 a year.
