Cody Sheehan

Vice- President (HTX)

After suffering with Cystic Fibrosis for almost 3 decades, Cody underwent a double lung AND liver transplant (BSSLTX and Liver TX) in the same 17 hour surgery thanks to not only both surgical teams from St Vincent’s and RPA Hospitals, but his donor as well.

Cody enjoys fundraising and public speaking. He has had considerable experience working with/ liaising with non- profits from the Australian CF National and State organisations, to international non-profits (More Than Just Me) and other diseases as well. This also includes assisting and coordinating large scale fundraising events from gala balls to film releases and movie nights. Cody also got Marvel approval for his own CF Avengers
movement- a global team of CF sufferers whose sole purpose is to bring hope and joy to those with the disease.

Cody currently promotes and raises awareness for Organ Donation, via both Donate Life and through Committee involvement with AHLTA. He says & quote; I hope the future of transplantation is that anyone who needs one - gets one & quote; and “that Australia will eventually adopt the Opt-Out policy for organ donation”.
