|Sixty five roses (Cystic Fibrosis)|
My back neighbour, Sian, has Cystic Fibrosis, so listening to the 17 year old girl on the ABC Radio National Science Show discussing the topic is something which is close to home. Her name is Emma Money, and she lives in Adelaide. If you're n the ACT and want more information, you should contact The CF Association of the ACT.
Interestingly, the radio show mentions that the gene defect first appears 15,000 years ago in Celtic stock, and that all the current sufferers are related in some what. I hadn't really thought about it before, but that certainly makes sense.
