To whom it may concern:

We are parents of a little girl with Cystic Fibrosis. The "important things in life" have changed dramatically for our family.

Being a parent of a child with Cystic Fibrosis means a life of vigilance, a life of worry, a life of constant watching.

The worry and watching starts from the moment you are told your child has Cystic Fibrosis, wrapping them up warm, feeding them the best food and holding your breath every time they cough, is this going to be an infection?

If you were to ask me what I want most in life I would say: "a cure for Cystic Fibrosis and no more suffering for my child".

If you were to ask me "How can you help?" I would say: "Help Cystic Fibrosis hopesource foundation fund the research , staff and treatment that would give my child and 1,100 young Irish people with Cystic Fibrosis a better quality of life"

We believe as parents, that the future for all who live with this life threatening, heart-breaking condition, lies in better medical care early in life and in research to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.

Please help us to achieve this soon
