I am the lucky one, but like thousands others, two people very close to my heart are relying on organ donations. Tragically bad odds of chromosomes mean that my sister and brother suffer with cystic fibrosis. Whilst CF doesn’t have to be a limiting illness, it has hit my siblings hard and it continues to threaten my brother’s life.
My sister has survived 10 years after a double lung transplant. My brother, aged
38, is currently on the waiting list for new lungs. Without this, his chance of
survival is slim.
I am running to raise awareness for organ donation, the biggest gift anyone could ever give. I also want to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, who undertake amazing work in supporting those effected whilst also funding cutting edge research.
Anything you can donate would be much appreciated
