Battle to breathe: The Olivier Siblings

Fundraising Target: R104 400

Funds Raised to date: R 181 333.33


The battle to breathe Joshua (18) and his sister Mia (15) were both born with Cystic Fibrosis.

It’s an “invisible disease”, a chronic life- threatening disorder that damaged the lungs and digestive system. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) causes thick mucus that clog organs: lungs, pancreas and intestines.

It causes malnutrition, poor growth, frequent respiratory infections, breathing problems and chronic lung disease with permanent damage.

This family not only face health challenges, they struggle covering medical expenses too. At times heavy doses of antibiotics are needed, more medication, nebulizer, physiotherapy, tests, x-rays, prodding and poking. It’s been a tough journey for these siblings: they have been so brave facing this big challenge from such a young age.

There is no cure for CF but there is recently an effective medication available called Trixacar. They need this medication life long to have more breaths and years added to their lives. The Olivier siblings need a second chance on living life to the fullest.

They need to start using Trixacar as soon as possible.

We are asking for your support, prayers and assistance for this family’s financial burden. The target just for medical aid is R8700 pm.

A small donation per month could make this sustainable, but a once off donation is also very helpful to start the medication as soon as possible.

Cystic Fibrosis is a multi organ disease and they need proper medical aid to keep on breathing for longer.

Please can you show your support and help them beat Cystic Fibrosis.
