“Each Breath” campaign

“Each Breath” campaign HCFA TEAM February 15, 2023

Each breath a step closer to our dreams

A promising slogan for the general public, which is also a slogan for Cystic Fibrosis patients. It refers to the breath they lack the most of CF patients and their daily struggle to catch up with their dreams in the limited time they have to live.

"Each breath a step closer to our dreams"

A unique campaign

From 2012 to 2016, the Association organised the “Each Breath” awareness campaign, which included multiple public awareness activities on the disease and prevention. Within a few years, with a targeted, diverse, multidimensional and effective campaign, the Association managed to make a rare condition unknown to the public widely known with multiple benefits.

Society has embraced the campaign, while at the same time showing interest in learning about the disease. At the same time, the campaign has been a catalyst for the Association’s demands and the response of the Greek health authorities. Patients themselves, gaining confidence, started to accept the disease, starring themselves in the awareness videos!

"Each breath" products

The Association has created products with the promising slogan “each breath” of high design and quality in order to inform the public about Cystic Fibrosis.

  • mugs
  • notebooks
  • T-shirts
  • calendars
  • agendas
  • bags

Racing team "each breath"

Exercise and participation in sports is part of the daily treatment of patients with Cystic Fibrosis.

The Association created the CF Racing Team, which participates in various sporting events (Authentic Classic Marathon, International Marathon “Alexander the Great”, cycling races) in order to raise public awareness of the daily struggle of patients.

At the end of the bike rides, balloons with the names of CF patients, who have lost their lives, are released into the sky.
