"Some people start their days with coffee

My days always began with 2 nebulisers and 45 minutes of agonising physiotherapy. Only then could I breathe well enough to start my day.

But thanks to some incredible research into treatments for cystic fibrosis, I don’t have to do that anymore. I have a drug that keeps my lungs clear… I can even go walking and cycling now. It’s an absolute dream to be out on the Dales every weekend!

But I am one of the lucky ones. Some people aren’t able to take the meds, so they are stuck with the old daily treatments. I really feel their pain.

I wish that everyone with cystic fibrosis had access to a treatment that could change their life for the better. Until then, all that any of us can hope for is that the research continues."

A gift in your Will will help fund research into cystic fibrosis so that we can provide better care, better treatments, and,  ultimately, find a cure for everyone with cystic fibrosis.
