Welcome to the CF Creative Space

A site dedicated to the creativeness of those people with Cystic Fibrosis.

The CF Creative Space was inspired by all those fellow patients and friends who live day to day with Cystic Fibrosis. Not only living with CF, but taking charge in their own way.

I have found over the years that people cope with often confronting or traumatic circumstances in many ways. One of these ways is through various forms of creativity. This may take the form of poetry, short stories, drawing, painting or even body decoration with tattoos. Every form of creativity has a story behind it.

The CF Creative Space is an online avenue where any one who has CF or knows someone with CF can submit any form of creativity.  This may take the form of short stories, poetry, drawings, photos, paintings, animation, video… in fact anything creative. The only requirement to having your work posted is that the subject matter has to be about CF. That could include perspectives from patients, parents, friends or siblings – anyone that knows anyone with CF.

As a person living with CF, I thought it important to highlight and display the amazing scope of creativity by fellow CFer’s. Also inspire and challenge those people that don’t have the disease. In conjunction with the Vertex Cystic Fibrosis Circle of Care Grant, this site will be continually evolving based on the content received by people.

Those willing to put themselves out there and share often have very personal stories on their own experiences of living with Cystic Fibrosis.
