No Ordinary Lives
Living With Cystic FibrosisStreaming Video - 2013
This very special episode of Tonic-the final episode for series 1-features a remarkable story of courage, resilience, and achievement by young people. Thirteen years ago, a film was made about the experience of teenagers living with a disabling, life-shortening condition called cystic fibrosis. In those days, it was common for children and young people to die from this disease which damages the lungs and causes problems with digestion, resulting in malnutrition. Since then, the story has changed and people with the inherited condition live much longer lives. We catch up with the original interviewees to see what's become of them as adults, and we follow two young people living with the condition today.
