“The Cystic Fibrosis Trust’s work is vital, providing life changing world class research, day to day care and support as well as campaigning for life saving drugs for all.

Richard Madeley, journalist, TV presenter and writer, is a Celebrity Ambassador for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. He has supported up for over 15 years.
Richard said: “I’ve been a supporter of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust for over 15 years. I was first introduced through Nicky West, an incredibly special woman who sadly died from cystic fibrosis in 2004 at the age of 30. As with many people who have this life shortening, condition she didn’t take life for granted and made the most of it. I’ve seen so many in the community fight long and hard for life saving drugs. We won’t stop fighting until everyone with cystic fibrosis can live a life unlimited.”
