A message from Luke Martineau:

Thank you to everyone who attended the twenty-first Carols by Candlelight in memory of Alice Martineau, who died from cystic fibrosis (CF) in 2003. 


You may have read about the incredible advances being made in the treatment of CF, particularly in the form of Kaftrio, a drug which is helping to keep infections down in a great number of those living with CF. It may sound sometimes as though the battle has been won, but sadly it has not. Not everyone responds well to Kaftrio; lung damage itself can be halted, but not reversed; and even if the lungs do not deteriorate, other organs such as the kidneys and liver still get worse over time. Finally, although the increased longevity and quality of life for those with CF is to be hugely welcomed, with longer lives come other difficulties to overcome; for instance, how to plan for the workplace or families whilst keeping up with the burden of daily treatment. 


Alice suffered a great deal in her short life, but she also achieved so much, signing her record deal with Sony and releasing her debut album Daydreams to critical acclaim in 2002. We have always hoped that what Alice went through will help make a better future for the thousands of people living with cystic fibrosis, and for their families who support and care for them.  


Thank you all for your amazing support.
