Drowning In Air (Working Title)
I have a documentary very much in the pipeline focusing on CF and how it effects those with the condition. I am looking for those with the condition and also families of those with CF to be part of the documentary shooting in late 2017. If you are at a particular stage be it diagnosis, treatment, operation and have a story you wish to share I would love to hear from you.
I do want to show CF in all it's varying degrees of symptoms in order to raise awareness. It may not be easy viewing at times but it will have a very positive message and will hopefully educate and inspire more people to help the thousands of children and adults through fund raising and research.
I have two children close to me who have the condition and I see them go through the treatment, through the constant battle with infection, through the hospital admissions, through bullying, through the mental health issues young people simply should not have to go through. That is my inspiration, they are my inspiration, them and all the other people living with CF. The condition also has a double edged sword in that people with CF aren't able to meet each other in case cross-infection occurs, so cruel for those children who feel so different and can't come together as a group to help each other and be part of the CF community in the way other medical conditions allow.
If you think you can help and be part of this project please get in touch.
