My Bucket List

So here it is, my ever- growing bucket list, I started this many years ago as a teenager and been lucky enough to tick some off already. I should probably explain why my bucket list is so important to me… I have Cystic Fibrosis, for those who have not heard of this generic illness, it’s a life-limiting, life-shortening disease that gets worse the older I become.

I have lost many friends who have the same illness as me, all of them between 20- 31 years old, their life ending before it barely began. I want to be able to say ‘I did this’ instead of, ‘I wished I had done that’.

Anyway, this blog is not just about my CF, it’s about making every day count and pushing myself to chase my dreams, so here’s the list, in no particular order, I hope you enjoy reading about me ticking each one off!
