Bio

A freelance writer and filmmaker, I started the SmileThroughIt blog to track my progress (good or bad) on the transplant list as I battled end-stage Cystic Fibrosis, the UK's most common life-threatening genetic disease.

Luckily for me, I receive the Gift of Life - a life-saving double-lung transplant - in November 2007 and the blog now serves to track the immense changes in my life as I strive every day to honour my donor and push myself to make the most of my new life.
