Cystic Fibrosis Trust

Jason was honoured to host the Cystic Fibrosis Trust Parliamentary Reception, which highlighted the issues that affect transplantation rates for people with cystic fibrosis. Currently the lack of available lungs results in a third of people with cystic fibrosis dying whilst waiting for a transplant.

Jason is pictured with Oli Lewington who has cystic fibrosis and in 2007 received a double-lung transplant. Oli is a writer and filmmaker who went on to write a book on his experience which can be found by clicking here.

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is currently inviting people affected by lung transplantation to give their views about how the rate of transplantation and support for people undergoing transplants can be improved. The published report is expected later this year.
