I have cystic fibrosis, but it doesn't have me!

Cardiff woman launches fundraising campaign to raise £10,000 for the Better Life Appeal.

Beth Clarke Better Life Appeal


Beth Clarke hopes to raise funds for the Better Life Appeal which supports the All Wales Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre based at Llandough Hospital

She swallows 40 tablets, takes a litre of laxatives, and undergoes nearly fours of physiotherapy every day to keep her life-long disease under control.

But despite her arduous regime, cystic fibrosis patient Beth Clarke has begun an ambitious fundraising mission to improve specialist services at her local hospital.

Along with three of her dedicated friends the 33-year aims to donate £10,000 to the University Hospital Llandough by the end of 2015 – but she needs the public's help to achieve it.

Mrs Clarke was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at just 20 months old after suffering major digestion problems.
Since then a combination of physiotherapy and medication have kept the newlywed's condition under control.

Mrs Clarke has joined forces with friends Ceri-Anne Wilkins, Jackie Strawbridge and Hayley Mills to raise £10,000 for the Better Life Appeal, which aims to raise £1.3m to renovate a floor within the CF centre. Ceri-Anne and Jackie are both taking on the London to Brighton challenge later this year.
