My name is Katie Moore; I’m 30 years old and from Co. Mayo. I’m a visual artist. I love to travel, explore different countries and experience other cultures. I enjoy keeping fit, I have run 3 marathons, the most recent one being the New York City Marathon. I’m a real foodie and love to cook!
I also have Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited chronic disease that affects mostly the lungs, but also the pancreas, liver, kidneys, and intestine. There are about 1200 children and adults in the Ireland with CF. A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that: clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.
