Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia Support UK
“We are PCD Support UK. We are the UK’s dedicated charity supporting those affected by Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD), championing vital research into this rare disease since we began nearly 30 years ago. We’re here for those affected by PCD, we talk about PCD as widely as possible and we champion research to improve its diagnosis, management and treatment.
Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare, genetic disease affecting around 1 in 15,000 people in the UK. It is caused by abnormal motile cilia (motile cilia are the microscopic hairs that beat in the airways, sweeping secretions out of the respiratory tract). PCD can affect the lungs, nose, sinuses, ears and fertility.”
Cystic Fibrosis Holiday Fund
“Our purpose at the Cystic Fibrosis Holiday Fund is to provide children with cystic fibrosis (CF) and their families an opportunity to spend quality time together through short breaks and holidays. This has been impossible after the outbreak of Covid-19 which has hit CF families particularly hard. In response the CF Holiday Fund has developed three new programmes to meet basic needs during this unprecedented time. Focusing on the key requirements of exercise, education and emotional well-being the following three Covid Support Grants are on offer; Laptops, Exercise Equipment and Staycations.”
