Welcome from Team Glasgow

Hello and welcome to our new blog.

Team Glasgow is made up of Jacqueline, Kirsty and Victoria who have all undergone life saving double lung transplants due to being in the end stages of the genetic lung disease Cystic Fibrosis. Being placed on the transplant waiting list, all three of them waited a significant length of time to receive that call and were given a 50% chance of surviving that period. Jacqueline received her transplant 2 years ago at age 29, Kirsty received hers 8 months ago at age 27 and Victoria is the baby in terms of transplants having had her's 4 months ago, age 27.

We feel so incredibly lucky to have been given this gift of life and a second chance - we now want to share this gift with those still waiting. Team Glasgow plan to hold various events both big and small for the Charities which are held close to their hearts - Live Life Then Give Life, Cystic Fibrosis Trust, The Butterfly Trust, Willow Foundation and Gartnavel General Hospital CF Ward. All of these charities have helped the girls through end stage CF and transplant and now it's time to give back.

Team Glasgow currently have their first event planned -

Masquerade Ball for Live Life Then Give Life


We hope to see you there and feel free to send us an email or leave us a comment.
