Description

Who are we?
Cystic Fibrosis Western Australia was established in the 1970’s by a group of concerned parents. The Association was a self-help organisation, holding regular meetings to share information, purchase equipment and fundraise to support research into cystic fibrosis.

In essence the work of CFWA remains the same today. We provide education, counselling, advocacy, recreation and home care services. We also provide home nursing and physiotherapy services to enable early discharge and early intervention from hospital.

Mission Statement
Our mission is to contribute to the social, physical and emotional well being of those affected by cystic fibrosis and to assist in the promotion of research.

Our Philosophy
Cystic Fibrosis Western Australia believes that each person should be given the best care and support that it can provide in a comprehensive, empathetic and professional manner.

Our Vision
Lives unaffected by CF.

About Muscular Dystrophy

 

Muscular dystrophy is a neuromuscular, genetic disorder which results in the progressive deterioration of muscle strength and function. There are in excess of 70 types of muscular dystrophy affecting more than 20,000 Australians.

Western Australians living with muscular dystrophy face daily challenges – their muscles waste away which steals their independence, they are confined to electric wheelchairs because they can no longer walk, and in many cases, each day, it becomes more difficult for them to breathe.

  • Type:Charity
  • Charity:Information & Referral

Details

Description

Neurofibromatosis (NF) is one of the most common genetic conditions and can affect anyone, regardless of family history, race, gender, or ethnic background.

There are three types of NF, type 1 (NF1),  type 2 (NF2), and the lesser known Schwannomatosis. NF1 affects approximately one out of every 3-4,000 individuals.  NF2 and Schwannomatosis affect one out of every 35-40,000 individuals.

NF is characterized by the growth of benign tumours called neurofibromas. These tumours can grow anywhere in the body where there are nerve cells. This includes nerves just under the surface of the skin, as well as nerves deeper within the body, spinal cord, and/or brain.

In NF1, neurofibromas most commonly grow on the skin or on the nerve to the eye. A tumour which grows on the nerve to the eye is called an optic glioma and, if it grows large enough, can cause problems with vision, including blindness.

In NF2, neurofibromas most commonly grow within the spinal cord or brain. Specifically, the tumours are found on the nerves to the ear, called acoustic neuromas, or the nerves for balance, called vestibular schwannomas. Acoustic neuromas, if large enough, can lead to deafness.
