A podcast sharing real stories from real people affected by cystic fibrosis.


Episode 08 - Love

Some love interests run away from CF but some are happy to take the plunge.


All Episodes


My name’s William Marler. I’m 24 years old, I’m an animator, I do stand-up comedy, and I have Cystic Fibrosis. In my new podcast Straight from the Lungs, I'll be helping to share real stories from real people affected by CF. You’ll hear from the experts of CF: the people living with it everyday and their friends and family, as well as the people who dedicate their lives to researching it and treating it. It’s not always going to be pretty, but it will give you a chance to meet some amazing people living extraordinary lives.

Straight from the Lungs is launching on 11th September 2018 at this year's Cystic Fibrosis Trust conference with an exclusive live episode, which you'll be able to watch online. That day will also see the launch of the main podcast, with the release of Episode 01: Cystic Fibrosis.

After 2 years of development in which I've met many amazing people and learned a huge amount about Cystic Fibrosis, I'll finally be coming to you Straight from the Lungs.

I have Cystic Fibrosis but Cystic Fibrosis doesn’t have me.
