Back the Kid launch

On Wednesday I hosted the parliamentary launch of the Back the Kid manifesto, which is campaigning for equal access to care and treatment for people with cystic fibrosis across the UK. (See One of my many nieces has CF, hence my interest.

At the event I met Joshua Jones, a young man with CF who has, despite his illness climbed Kilimanjaro to raise money for the CF Trust and has better lung function than most people his age. He's also a budding singer-songwriter - see to hear extracts from his new album. Although his songs aren't really my thing, he's got an undeniably great voice. (And is also a rather handsome young man!)
