CF Week 2018

This CF Week, we're talking time, from lengthy treatments to the long wait for precision medicines. Meet four people with CF who give us their unique perspectives on time, and don't forget to get sunny for Wear Yellow Day!

A week is a long time in cystic fibrosis

Hand drawn image of a clockThis CF Week we meet Michelle, Chloe, Amy and Dom, who all have cystic fibrosis (CF) and their own unique perspectives on the time that their conditions take away (or in some cases, give back!) every day.

You can also find out what we're doing to take time back for people with CF and their families, from funding ground-breaking genetic research to discover alternative chloride channels and thin the mucus in the lungs, to creating a whole stack of resources for people with CF who are leaving school and wondering what to do next.
