Cystic fibrosis research funding charity Cure4CF Foundation has launched a fundraising campaign this Father’s Day to support a dad who took on an incredible challenge to find a cure for his daughter’s illness.
Nigel and Karen Farrow were faced with every parent’s nightmare when their 10-week-old daughter, Ella was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. Nigel, a 36-year-old musician who had left school in Year 10, felt helpless but knew he had to do something for his daughter. Nigel gave up his career, began seven years of study and completed a PhD.
Now a molecular biologist and part of the Adelaide Cystic Fibrosis Gene Therapy Research Group, Nigel is helping to find a cure for cystic fibrosis airway disease – for Ella and the 70,000 other people who suffer from the disease globally.
Cure4CF Father’s Day Appeal will honour incredible fathers like Nigel who all play a vital role in their children’s lives.
