Anna was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) at four weeks. Cystic Fibrosis is one of the UKs most common, life-threatening, inherited diseases, that affects more than 8,000 people in the UK. Each week five babies are born with Cystic Fibrosis and two young lives are lost. Since her diagnosis Anna has been on a seemingly never-ending routine of medication, nebulizers and physiotherapy, and in addition has been hospitalised on many occasions for two-week IV antibiotics. Through it all Anna has remained a smiley, happy, independent little girl who will have to face many challenges throughout her life... she is our inspiration! Inspired by Anna we are raising money for children with Cystic Fibrosis in the Basingstoke area - and we would love your help! Our goal is to support the children and their families by buying essential equipment that the CF team don't have the budget to buy. These items will help make the children's day to day lives a bit easier and hopefully in some cases, add some fun! Thanks for looking at our page, if you can make a donation that would really be wonderful or if you fancy doing a challenge, please get in touch via our website www.annaschallenges.co.uk
