Mae Johnson Takes Over Cure4CF

Mae Johnson

My name is Mae Johnson, I am 16 years old. I was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when I was born and even though it makes my life more challenging I am determined to live life to the fullest and achieve all of my dreams.

I enjoy playing netball, reading and singing. I really like school and I have to work hard to keep up as I miss a lot of days because of hospital and illness. I want to be a brain surgeon when I grow up so I need to keep working hard and doing my best to achieve this dream.

I was delighted to become Cure4 Cystic Fibrosis’ first youth ambassador as I would love to raise awareness and help to find a cure for my disease. There are a lot of people who have never heard of CF and if I can help tell people about the disease and how it affects my life then maybe, we can raise enough money to find a cure.
