This Is Alife Clarke, From Eccles Manchester, He was born with Cystic Fibrosis.
The genetic defect associated with CF causes mucus-producing cells in the body to produce secretions that are very thick.
This fundrasing is for 'The Vest® Airway Clearance System'Due to the cost of the vest the NHS do not not fund it, dispite the benefits it gives to children with CF prelonging their lives and making it a lot more bearable.
Part of his daily routine is to have Psysio Therapy 3 times a day, this involves smacking his back with a cupped hand quite hard to loosen the muscus and cause a lot of distress.If this psyio does not work, the only alternative is for him to have operations to clear the muscus as its casuing very dangerous infections, he spends many weeks in hospital on anti-biotic drips.
The cost of the vest, pulse genterator and needed accesories is beyond his parents and family reach, when he out grows the vest part of the cost is that the medical company replace the vest for a bigger size free of charge.
His father Darren Clarke has done charity swim last year rasing for for the Cystic Fibrosis research trust and now plans to do more fundrasing for The Vest that will porlong his son's life and make it lot easier.
Alfie was in Hospital for an operation to remove the muscus, with the vest he should not need to have these operations to remove it.
