Double Lung Transplant Patient
From the age of 6 months old Hetal was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). It was difficult for her parents to understand this condition as their first language wasn’t English, however, they understood that it would require routine hospital stays for chest infections as well as daily medication and physiotherapy.
Despite the condition, Hetal tried to live a normal life. Going on to attend university in Birmingham where she managed to fit the daily physio treatments and medication in with studying and socialising. Successfully graduating with a 2:1 degree in Multimedia Technology she was determined not to let CF control her life.
