Oli Rayner

Please sponsor us to help raise money for the wonderful Harefield Hospital where I recently had a double lung transplant. I am a 41 year old with CF and had been on the waiting list for just over two years. I was discharged from Harefield on 10 August 2017. It is hard to describe the miracle of how I feel. I feel very lucky to be able to breathe easily, do so many simple things I could not do before (or which were, before, a major project), exercise and have the opportunity to build a whole new future.

I am grateful to all those at Harefield who have made this happen for me and have given me such excellent care. Above all that, I am grateful to my wonderful donor and their family for such a precious, kind and vital gift. I hope many other people with CF, who may be struggling to breathe or tired of shifting endless gunk from their airways, have the opportunity in the future to feel the freedom I feel today.

Team Oli is made up of my family and close friends and without them I would not be here. We are doing this Fun Run to say thank you to everyone at Harefield for what they do and help them help others like me in the future.
