La.M.P. Ltd has partnered with the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, to support them.

 Says François Evans:

Many years ago when I was a student in Paris, I got to know a fellow by the name of Riadh Ktari. "Let's meet for a drink!" In his early 30s, on a glorious summer day, I remember he turned up on the Ile de la cité, lugging a weighty green oxygen cylinder. I learned he had a genetic condition called cystic fibrosis. He lived at a health centre, which offered support to university students in Paris, who had special health needs. We became good friends.

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder which affects various organs, particularly the lungs, causing difficulty breathing. Those with the condition have to have regular lung-clearing sessions and bothersome doses of antibiotics.

Some years later, I returned from England and knocked at the door of the health centre to ask if Riadh was there. I was saddened to learn that he had recently passed away. The life expectancy for those with this genetic condition, is early 30s.

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is a UK-based and terrifically-well organised charity, that funds: (i) research into finding a cure, (ii) improving care standards and (iii) supporting those with the condition and their loved ones.

You can donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust here: Donate to the Cyctic Fibrosis Trust. We are proud to be assisting them.
