Zara is 3 years old and has Cystic Fibrosis. We are hoping to raise some funds to buy her a physio vest. This will be used as an aid to help her when performing her twice daily physiotherapy. All patients diagnosed with CF in America and other countries are issued with a vest as standard, but is currently not funded by the NHS.

At present, Zara's family perform physio on her by hand and using other techniques, and we hope that this vest will ensure that she is getting the best care possible and will also help support her ever increased desire for dependance. 

For those of you who do not know, Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disease caused by a faulty gene. This gene controls the movement of salt and water in and out of your cells, so the lungs and digestive system become clogged with mucus, making it hard to breathe and digest food.

More than 2.5 million people in the UK carry the faulty gene, around one in 25 of the population.

There is currently no cure for cystic fibrosis but many treatments are available to manage it, including physiotherapy, exercise, medication and nutrition.

Each week five babies are born with cystic fibrosis, and two people die.

More than half of the cystic fibrosis population in the UK will live past 41, and improved care and treatments mean that a baby born today is expected to live even longer.
