Sinead: I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for research.

My story:

I have IPF (Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis) - a condition where the lungs become scarred, making it harder to breathe.  The cause of IPF is not known. There’s no cure. My condition is only going to get worse. I know I must keep well physically and mentally. I suspect a lot more people will develop IPF as a result of the coronavirus. Thank you for visiting my Take Steps page. This September I'm getting active to raise money to help people with lung conditions get the support they need. I'm fundraising for the British Lung Foundation, the only charity that supports all 12 million people with a lung condition in the UK.

The BLF knows just how difficult the current crisis has been for people with a lung condition. Their Helpline alone has been receiving up to 3x more calls than normal and they're working round the clock to make sure people get the support they need, helping to ease the strain on the NHS. They're publishing up to date advice and information every day but they need support...

Every £57 I raise through my Take Steps pays for a nurse to work on the Helpline for 1 hour, meaning that those in need can receive crucial medical advice and support when they need it most.

Support my challenge by donating or joining my Take Steps team today!
