Cystic fibrosis sufferer Nicole Adams almost died four years ago after developing severe flu but improved dramatically when she was prescribed wonder drug Kaftrio. 

The medication has allowed 31-year-old Nicole to laugh freely, sing and dance, and nine months ago, she gave birth to little Colby – something she feared would never happen due to her cystic fibrosis. 

Now the Newtownabbey mum-of-one has joined a campaign to see the drug made available in low-income countries. 

“In third world countries, people with cystic fibrosis are dying needlessly because they can’t get the funding for this medication,” Nicole tells Local Women Magazine. 

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited condition that cause sticky mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive system. This causes lung infections and problems with digesting food. 

The condition tends to get worse over time and can be fatal if it leads to a serious infection or the lungs stop working properly.
