Most of the New Zealand CF community know Lizzie McKay, a 30-year-old person with CF who works for CFNZ as a Communications Coordinator. Her friendly and bubbly nature makes her easy to like but her story is not an easy one to hear as a mother of a little one with CF.

In this episode, we discuss Lizzie's role at CFNZ and the organisation where she's found a whole new family. She also shares very candidly her journey to getting a lung transplant aged 21. If you are new to the world of CF maybe don't start with this episode as a discussion around transplants could be too confronting. However, if you're keen to know more about the process and recovery then listen to this brilliant chat with Lizzie. She's so upbeat ad honest about her life and health and hands out prize pieces of advice like candy!
