During the summer all proceeds will go to Breathe Bravely, a not-for-profit organisation that aims to give people with cystic fibrosis a voice through offering free singing lessons.

This website was created in 2013 by Jesper Wallerborg, Hannah Almerud, and Mattias Forsberg as a birthday present for me. They collaborated on the design and set up the domain and the original web-shop at TeePublic.  However, due to time and practical reasons my husband recently took over the administration of the site and opened a second web-shop at Spreadshirt that is located within the EU.

Cystic Fibrosis

“Woe to the child who tastes salty from a kiss on the brow, for he is cursed and soon must die.”

Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited disease that causes the sweat to become very salty and the body to produce abnormally thick and sticky mucus. It primarily affects the lungs and digestive system, but other organs can also be affected. For the disease to manifest two faulty genes are required, one from the mother and one from the father.

The diagnosis is made after a sweat test, symptoms, and established inheritance.

There are about 670 people with cystic fibrosis in Sweden and with the treatment available today the life expectance is approximately 40 years.

Research provides hope of a better quality of life – and a longer life.
