Mrs Julia Laybutt awarded Life Membership
At the recent Annual General Meeting of Cystic Fibrosis Community Care, Mrs Julia Laybutt of Goulburn was awarded with Life Membership.
Julia founded the Goulburn Cystic Fibrosis Appeal Group over 45 years ago when her daughter, who was born with CF, was a young child. Julia created a group of dedicated and willing helpers that has worked hard to raise awareness of CF in the wider community.
The group has raised significant funds that have directly supported people with CF and their families in the Goulburn region. In addition, they helped fund CF research and provided support for programs for the broader CF community through CFNSW (which later became part of CFCC).
Julia is a passionate advocate for people with CF and we are indebted to her for her tireless efforts. We extend heartfelt thanks to her for such a wonderful contribution over so many years.
