AN APPEARANCE on the small screen in the new year will help raise vital funds and awareness for a cause close to Kelly Lotz's heart.

Mrs Lotz has been picked to appear in a series of Adventure All Stars, and she will be taken away for six days of adventure at a secret location, with the results going to air later this year.

Mrs Lotz's son Chase, four, has cystic fibrosis, a progressive, generic disease which caused doctors to warn his family his life would be cut tragically short.

They also expect Chase, who will start school at Emmaus College in 2021, to undergo a liver transplant within five years.

Cystic Fibrosis Queensland, is an organisation which has helped the Chambers Flat family - Mrs Lotz, husband Clayton, Chase and daughter Ruby, eight - with equipment, money towards hospital parking costs and educational products.

Mrs Lotz said she wanted to use her appearance on the show to give back. She aimed to raise $10,000 for the cause.

"I don't want to just stop there. I want to raise as much as possible," she said.

She and the other cast members on the show have been selected for their fundraising efforts.

After filling out application forms and a couple of interview rounds, Mrs Lotz got the call from producers earlier this month that she was in.

Filming begins in October, and she does not know what to expect from the program.

"It's all a secret, and I'm not allowed to know what we are going to do or where we are going to go," she said.

"I'm excited to get some ideas in place to start raising money."

The family has a charity auction, music night and car show planned to help the cause. They are looking for as much help as possible to lift the total.

Chase must have medication every day to keep on top of his condition, an illness which would leave Mrs Lotz lying awake at night, worry about what his future would hold.

"In the short time this warrior has been on the earth, he has undergone way too many hospital visits, stays, tests, needles and stress," she said.

"Especially for a boy of only four years old."
