About Me

I was born in Zimbabwe on the 8th June 1987 and diagnosed with a genetic condition called Cystic Fibrosis a year later. This meant that I spent my whole life being ill, in and out of hospitals and undergoing continuous grueling treatments. Nearing death on the 5th of March 2013 my life changed when I finally received a Double Lung Transplant. Now I'm metamorphosing out of the cocoon that has held me back most of my life!

Follow along as I rediscover life with my beautiful new lungs. The ups, the downs, it's all part of life and I'm absolutely loving it!!

If you have any questions about cystic fibrosis, transplant, or me just ask - I'm pretty much an open book!

The most important way in which you can help, is to pledge to become an organ and tissue donor! Please take the time to inform your chosen family members and friends of your decision. Tell you family HERE
