Cystic Fibrosis Trust

We work throughout the UK with one mission to beat cystic fibrosis for good

Story

On the 10th July some of my family and friends are doing an abseil down the Ipswich Hospital Maternity Block. Despite a few of them having a fear of heights, they want to do all they can to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is one of the UK's most common life-threatening, inherited diseases which affects over 9000 people in the UK, unfortunately the life expectancy is only in the early 30's.

I am 20 years old and have 'end-stage Cystic Fibrosis' which means there are no more treatments available to improve my health, so my only option is a risky double-lung transplant.

All money raised goes towards helping to improve the lives of people living with CF. But most importantly, it funds researching a cure, which if found, could mean that in the future people with CF will never get to this stage I am at.

Please donate any money you can, all contributions will make a difference.

Thank you.
