Pre-sales of Coughing the Distance Packs!

Yes, we are progressing!
The documentary is still scheduled for completion in April. We have quotes for DVD pressing and book printing (yes, also on track with that!), and now need funding to actually print/press the packs.

An official launch has been decided on for August at the Australia New Zealand Cystic Fibrosis Nurses Conference which is held in Hobart this year! Terry Stewart, CEO of CF Australia is giving the keynote speech for the conference, and will hopefully give it a plug! If in April we find a NAtional TV station to air the documentary we can most likely arrange for the TV broadcast to coincide with it in August.

To get the books and DVDs ready for sale we need funding! Help! Why not pre-purchase the pack consisting of the children's book, the adult book and the DVD. Individual sales also possible. It will be shipped to you FREE OF CHARGE in August!

Check out the new website we designed for it: and invest in Cystic Fibrosis today for a brighter future tomorrow!

Donations still accepted!

I am pleased to advise that this last month of 2007 another $1200 has been donated to help us produce 'Coughing the Distance' - the inspirational documentary covering our ride from Paris to Istanbul!

In particular I like to thank the Southern Cross Club from Canberra for their kind donation!

The book is making progress as well, albeit slowly. Printing the book and producing the DVD is planned for April when we hope to have it all together! The book and DVD package is destined for CF clinics and hospitals around the world to provide a small ray of sunshine to people with CF. The educational and inspirational Coughing the Distance combo (book and DVD) will make a difference to those affected by CF who have only read and heard about the clinical prospect of living with CF.

Packaged with the combo will be information on organ donations, as all people with CF are likely to end up on the lung transplant register.

If you are able to help, or know of people who can, we still need to arrange funding for this venture. We hope to find a corporate sponsor or philanthropist who is willing to invest in the cause!
