Walter van Praag has Cystic Fibrosis and does inspirational adventures to raise awareness and funds for CF and encourage people to become Organ Donors.
This year Walter is travelling to the USA to get Phage Therapy to eradicate an antibiotic-resistant bacteria out of his lung. Phage Therapy is a serious contender to replace, or at least adjunct antibiotics treatment to fight antibiotic-resistant infections.
The Mercury gave me some nice press! I am nowhere near the oldest person with CF, I can think of two others of the half a dozen people with CF that I know in Tasmania older than me. But still, good article!
