Taryn Barrett who has a child with Cystic Fibrosis is Chair of the South West Chapter of
Conquer Cystic Fibrosis. The aim of the group is to fund research into CF on ways sufferers of this condition can live better and have a longer life than at present.
CFV is a genetic disease that causes the mucus in the body to become thick and sticky. This clogs the lungs, trapping bacteria. In most cases it also clogs the digestive system and impacts several other parts of the body. A baby with CF has a life expectancy of 38 years but the current, average age of death sits at 27.
