Boy with CF Improves Lung Function by Playing the Bagpipes


According to the Mirror UK,  an 8 year-old-boy with cystic fibrosis saw his lung function improve after taking up playing the bagpipes.

Vincent Forkner discovered his passion for playing bagpipes after his mum said he became “obsessed” with all things Scottish. He’s been learning to play the pipes with the Peterborough Highland Pipe Band since March 2015 and despite his health problems he is described as being a “very happy” boy
