Emma has cystic fibrosis, an inherited life-threatening disorder that damages the lungs and digestive system, and as she grew up, her lungs became progressively worse. By the time she was 19 she was only breathing with 30% of her lungs’ capacity.
In her late 20s, at the advice from her doctors, Emma went on the waiting list for a double lung transplant. This podcast explores the year she spent waiting for that phone call, her recovery, and what she’s learnt coming out of such a life altering experience.
