Donation to James Cook University Hospital Cystic Fibrosis Unit

The photograph shows Mike Overy, Middlesbrough Erimus Rotary Club Special Projects Chairman with Pauline and Clare.

Pauline Singleton and Clare Lord, from James Cook, gave an excellent and informative presentation. They described how debilitating CF is and how our donation of 5 nebulisers, which cost just below £600 each, would transform the lives of 5 young people.

The nebuliser is a pot that holds liquid medication and attached to a compressor changes the medication  into a fine mist to be breathed in. The mist produced is a very efficient way of getting the medication into the patient and improves effectiveness with significant reduction in the amount of medication required.
