I’m running the Royal Parks Half Marathon in October for the Royal Brompton and Harefields Hospitals and their appeal for Cystic Fibrosis.

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects more than 10,000 people in the UK, CF causes a build-up of thick sticky mucus in the lungs, digestive system and other organs, which leads to a range of challenging symptoms.

People with CF have to come into hospital a lot for check ups. This can be very exhausting, as well as time-consuming and expensive.

Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity are raising £500,000 to develop a first-of-its-kind digital platform, 'CF Future Care'. The platform will allow people with CF to have virtual consultations and monitor their health wherever they are, giving them greater freedom over their care and their lives.
