    Story

    Tragically, on the 9/6/17 at 6:25am we lost our beloved daughter, sister, partner and friend to an awfully wasteful genetic disorder called Cystic Fibrosis.
    Tina loved to travel and on her last holiday to Las Vegas, due to reduced lung function, required a constant oxygen supply from a portable oxygen concentrator; hired at a cost of £770 pounds. This combined with astronomical insurance fees (£850) and hotel costs created an extremely expensive holiday.
    We, her immediate friends and family would like to reduce the costs of holidays for other Cystic Fibrosis patients and families by providing an oxygen concentrator free of charge. Consequently, in memory of Tina and her love of travel we are creating Tina's Airways charity to raise funds for the purchase of an (or as many as) Inogenone G3 portable oxygen units.

      Again thanks to you all once again! Today we have completed the final arrangements for Tina's funeral. It will be held on Friday 30th June at St John's church Irlam 10 a.m. and then a gathering afterwards at Irlam Catholic club 11:30am. It terms of Tina's Airways I am in dialogue with the small charities coalition over the next steps in establishing a new charity; any steps will be reported to you all. Thanks again and see you soon Russ, Anne and Stacey.

      Please can I thank you all once again for your support we are absolutely stunned and the response from you all and take comfort in seeing how well respected and loved Tina was by you all. This morning we have spoken with a UK supplier of the Inogen G3 unit and have been quoted £2339 for the unit with one battery, £415 for a spare battery and £130 for backpack; so Tina's Airways will be happening! Thanks to you all other CF sufferers will be able to create precious family memories.
