About - Alfie B


Story written 2017

Alfie was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at four weeks old. In his nine years of life he has had so many IVs and injections that he is now needle phobic. He takes 50 tablets a day to keep him alive. Alfie’s cystic fibrosis does not just affect his lungs, he also has liver disease and his pancreas doesn’t work. He has spent a lot of time in hospital over the years.
Alfie feels like his condition is a very lonely one, as we can’t mix with other families with CF due to infection risk.
Last year his family fund raised for an airway clearing system which helps his breathing, but he still has to have breathing treatment every day.

Update 1st October 2019

I’ve had a chat with Alfie and hes ready to move on from post pals, Thank you so much from the bottom of both our hearts for the love we have both received from complete strangers through post pals. A fabulous charity and will look back on his post in the years to come and remember people are so kind. Thank you for your hard work lots of love Janine and Alfie
