Living with

cystic fibrosis

This video was directed and produced by the talented Olivia Tremul, sister of CF Warrior, Gabby. Special thanks to Tribe Productions.

Living with cystic fibrosis can mean:

  • Taking up to 40 tablets per day to help digest food
  • Up to two hours of physiotherapy treatment every day
  • Taking nebulised drugs (i.e. in an inhaled mist) every day
  • Regular, but unpredictable, two-week hospital admissions each year
  • A shortened life-span (approx 38 years on average)
  • Never knowing what it feels like to live a ‘normal’ life because of the impact of numerous hospital visits each year
  • It is recommended that people with CF should never meet because of cross infection.
