Team story

<p><strong>Please help us in finding a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis</strong></p> <p><br />My name is Leanne Harper and this year I turn 25 years. I suffer with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and Cystic Fibrosis related Diabetes. I am the oldest of 20 suffers on the Island.</p> <p>Living with this disease my everyday living consists of taking 20-30 tablets to help digest my food, daily physiotherapy and nebulised antibiotics to help keep my lungs free from infection, I also do regular home Intravenous Antibiotics when I have a chest infection. Two years ago I developed CF related diabetes which I have to inject insulin to control my blood sugars. I deal with this from day to day and still manage to live independently.</p> <p>This October I am planning to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to help raise money for research into finding a cure for CF, with a Heart and Lung disease this is going to be a big physical ask from my body.<br />&nbsp;<br />Supporting me on my trip will be my two cousins Jennifer and Karen Davies, also my good friend Sophie Elsley. Our training is well under way, we are hiking twice a week and using the gym. We are entering the Parish walk to help raise funds and also help with our training.<br />&nbsp;<br />Our goal is to raise &pound;7,000, this will help fund the medical and scientific research to develop a cure and provide effective treatment for CF sufferers like myself.</p> <p>If you could help us with raising our target of &pound;7k that would help not only increase the awareness of CF but help make this event a huge success.</p> <p>Thanks Leanne</p>
