Cystic Fibrosis Ireland

A Killaloe teenager who’s living with Cystic Fibrosis is pleading with people to hold tough and continue to follow social distancing guidelines.

Jade Needham has been isolating at home for the better part of a month, in an effort to avoid catching COVID-19, which on account of her condition, could prove fatal for her.

Traditionally Jade joins efforts to raise money for Cystic Fybrosis Ireland this time of year, but in light of the public health emergency, the organisation is carrying out all fundraisers online.


Jade has acknowedged the difficulties of staying away from family and friends, but she it’s could be the difference of life and death for the most vulnerable in society.
