Bronchiectasis Supporters Evening

There was a lively Q+A session after Professor Jeremy Brown’s presentation at our Breathing Matters jb-talking-1Bronchiectasis Supporters Evening last week.

“How do we know when to start antibiotics?”

“What information will the newly opened Bronch UK study show?”

“What can we do to help?”

Professor Stephen Spiro from the British Lung Foundation explained how the BLF have a big voice and can lobby to make the case of bronchiectasis heard nationally on behalf of smaller charities, such as Breathing Matters.

The evening started off with a very personal story of bronchiectasis from Jane Walker, who is a patient at UCLH and part of our Breathing Matters team.  Jane used to be in the Holst Singers choir before bronchiectasis stopped her from singing professionally.  Jane now organises our annual Christmas Concert, with the Holst Singers in residence.

Guests were then treated to a tour of the refurbished laboratories.

It was so lovely to meet so many of you in person and we look forward to seeing you at our Christmas Concert at St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden on 9th December 2016, to help raise money for bronchiectasis research.

Thank you to Sainsbury’s Warren Street for supporting our evening.
