About Us

Established in 2018 the Julian Benson CF Foundation aims is to provide much-needed support and services to CF warriors and their families. Julian Benson was just two when he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Doctors told his mother Maura he probably wouldn’t live to become a teenager. But they were wrong…​

Courage, an unstoppable attitude plus Maura’s endless support and belief led to Julian becoming one of Ireland’s leading talent agents and choreographers well known for his role as a judge on the TV series ‘Dancing with the Stars’.​
Julian has lived with CF for over fifty years. He shouldn’t have excelled in the world of dance or lived a full, exciting life. CF should have won – but it hasn’t. ​

Julian understands first-hand the needs and challenges of CF warriors. Therefore, he has established the Foundation to make a difference, creating a legacy that will continue to help patients and families have a better quality of life. This will be achieved through opening Ireland’s first home away from home taking away a real world worry for CF warriors and their loved ones when travelling to Dublin hospitals for treatment.

This home will be known as Tranquility House. Upon opening of Tranquility House our next project will see us embark on fundraising to open a Wellness and Respite Facility. Our goal is to realise this project in 2026
