She was transplanted in 2012 but sadly passed away this May. We all love & miss her & we hope these funds will help research for a cure so other families have hope for the future.

We chose to do this walk as firstly we wanted to do something to mark Mandys birthday, she would of been 55 on the 8th September. Secondly it being IPF awareness month & thirdly because Mandy loved the lakes and we spent many happy holidays there as children and her and Mark her husband had spent holidays walking there before she got ill.
