Dharma Breathes

My name is Dharma Bredell


I am 23 years old and just before my fifth birthday, I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. 

My normal day consists of two nebulisations with chest physiotherapy in between twice a day, in the morning and evening. 

I take a handful of supplements and medication to keep me going and I have a port-o-cath to make IV access a little bit easier when I am admitted to the hospital. 

My normal might be different from yours, but I wouldn’t change my life one bit. I have a saying, “I have Cystic Fibrosis, Cystic Fibrosis doesn’t have me” and I live by that.

I am currently a Honours Psychology student, working towards becoming a registered counsellor in South Africa. I have a passion for counselling, motivational speaking and spreading awareness for CF!

I am fundraising and raising awareness for a life-saving treatment called Trikafta. When I was younger, and the hospital stays got a little too long and the nebulisations and medications became too much, I told my parents I wished there was a simple treatment in the form of a pill. 

Now there is, but without your help, I and many others like myself will not be able to access this treatment.

Let’s show Dharma our support by ordering some really awesome and breathtaking Merchendise from her online store!
