Cystic Fibrosis

  • By Meabh Doolan · Ireland, Europe

 

Meabh Doolan

Main aim of the charity

To help aid research funds and increase the life expectancy for those suffering with the illness CF.

How the employee got involved and why

One of my dear friends past away on Christmas Day 2005 from Cystic Fibrosis, she was only 18. Her Brother unfortunately passed away from the same illness in March of this year. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs. Long-term issues include difficulty breathing and coughing up mucus as a result of frequent lung infections.

What work does the employee do for charity?

On Sunday the 16th September, my friend Catherine and I will walk from Howth Head in Co Dublin to Bray Head in Co Wicklow Ireland which is a total of 24miles (36 Kilometres). We aim to raise 500euro in sponsorship to this worthy charity. This will be the second time we have done this event for Cystic Fibrosis.
