Eurovision Song Contest Singer Bianca Nicholas Also Competing Against Cystic Fibrosis

According to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, living with cystic fibrosis (CF) is a lifetime challenge that involves a strict, daily regimen of drugs, time-consuming physiotherapy and the risk of infection that can critically escalate at any time. In spite of the odds, singer and CF’er Bianca Nicholas is battling the disease as well as the top spot in one of Europe’s most respected music competitions.
