    Story

    As many of you know, my beautiful sister Nicola sadly lost her life to Cystic Fibrosis in 2009. In her memory, and to mark the 10th anniversary of her passing, I plan to cycle 310 miles from London to Paris over the course of 4 days.

    I've already personally covered the fees required to undertake the journey, but I'm asking for donations to help the Cystic Fibrosis ward in Llandough hospital. The staff in this ward were very caring and compassionate towards our family and Nicola in the last few years of her life. In doing this, I hope that the ward can continue to provide a high level of care for sufferers of Cystic Fibrosis and provide support to their families, as they once did for us.

    Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder with no cure. The disorder causes thick mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive system which can lead to life-threatening infections, cause breathing problems and stop enzymes required in digestion from reaching food in the gut. People with CF undergo many treatments to control their symptoms and to manage conditions that CF makes them more susceptible to.

    In the UK, 1 in 25 people are carriers of the CF gene. Unless they are specifically tested for the gene, most people are unaware they are carriers. If both parents of a child are carriers of the gene, then there is a 25% chance that their child will be born with CF. Every year 1 in 2500 newborns are diagnosed with CF, with 10, 400 people in the UK currently suffering from the genetic disorder.

    All help is welcome, even sharing the page to raise awareness of Cystic Fibrosis. Thank you for reading!
