Rare Disease Day 2018!

This day is very special for awareness for all kinds of rare diseases! As many of you know I have a genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis, it affects the organs especially the lungs and digestive system. The organs then become clogged with thick sticky mucus which is why we cf’ers need to frequently do treatment like nebulisers and physiotherapy. I would say it is still one of the rarest diseases  in the world as it is  estimated that only 100,000 people in the world. So I would say I am quite rare myself! With my cystic fibrosis I have also got CFRD (cystic fibrosis related diabetes) Its very rare a day goes by that my blood sugars are under 15! I don’t just want to spread awareness for for cf, I would also like to spread awareness for every other disease that isn’t really known. So please, SPREAD AWARENESS! L x  rare-disease-day-logo
