This short film from The Leanne Fund–a cystic fibrosis charity based in Northern Scotland and founded in 2009— is all about Arienne and her parents, a family from Fort William, Scotland.

Find out about nine different ways that cystic fibrosis can affect the body.

The family talk about what it’s like having a cystic fibrosis patient in the family, including the medications and treatments Arienne has to take each day, and the lung exercises she needs to perform. They also discuss how helpful the Leanne Fund has been, as the charity focuses on the entire family and not just the cystic fibrosis patient.
