David Williams on Cystic Fibrosis

5th July 2016

Listen to Tina Interview David Williams about his son, Albie, the discovery of his Cystic Fibrosis diagnosis, and the charity fund raising he's doing.

Hi, my name is David Williams. The 11th of January marked the proudest day of my life, so far. My wife Holly and I welcomed our first child; Albie Williams. He was born a healthy 6lbs 12 and we loved becoming parents. Three weeks after Albie’s birth we received a phone call which would devastate our lives; the results of the heel prick test confirmed that Albie had cystic fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis affects not just my life, but that of millions around the UK, and worldwide. 

fifty2s mapOn the 24th September 2016, myself and my good friend Luke Barber are going to be taking on what is known as an ultra-marathon. We will be taking on 52 miles of Cornwall’s grueling coastline to aid the work of Cystic Fibrosis Trust.  

The aim is to complete this 52.25 mile coastal run in one day, as a continuous run, we are looking to raise awareness of an illness which has no cure and to raise as much money as possible to further pursue the work that this truly amazing charity work towards on a daily basis.

Thank you.
