CF Life Magazine cover

CF Life – Spring 2022

In this issue of CF Life we look at how poverty and social deprivation can impact the CF community, and share some of the important work the Trust is doing to level the playing field and address the health inequalities many people are facing. You can also read about how Shad juggles cystic fibrosis with his responsibility as a carer to his mum, Poppy’s amazing journey from receiving a double lung transplant to hosting her first solo art exhibition, and how members of our Youth Advisory Group were inspired to make exercise fun for young people with CF. Plus lots more.
