Living with Cystic Fibrosis

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:28 pm on 3 May 2019

There's a new movie out in cinemas, focusing on two teens who are being treated for Cystic Fibrosis. The title "Five Feet Apart" comes from a guideline which states two patients must be kept apart to minimise the risk of infection.

New Zealand's CF foundation noticed there's been a lot of discussion online about the disorder and whether people really need to stay that far apart. 

We thought we'd talk to one of the more than 500 kiwis living with Cystic Fibrosis, and Alana Taylor kindly agreed to tell us about it.
