Care from Caity Appeal

The Care from Caity Appeal has been established by Community Enterprise Foundation™ in partnership with the Alfred Foundation in memory of Caity Cuthill, of Maffra.

Caity suffered from Cystic Fibrosis and tragically died after receiving a double lung transplant.

Caity was just 20 when she died. She was born with Cystic Fibrosis and spent much of short life travelling up and down the freeway from Maffra to Melbourne for treatment at the Alfred Hospital.

Caity wanted to help other rural Gippsland families of transplant patients who also spend much of their time and funds travelling back and forth to the city for treatment as they wait for or recover from heart and lung transplants.

Your donation will go to the Alfred Foundation who work with the Care from Caity Advisory Committee to ensure families and transplant patients receive travel assistance and accommodation costs as part of their treatment for Cystic Fibrosis or organ transplant with the Alfred.

While Caity has tragically passed away, her dedication to supporting others with Cystic Fibrosis or require an organ transplant lives on.

Show your support for Caity and those in need of transplants from the Gippsland region by donating to this appeal.
