Name: Ryan Stephenson
Age: 22
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Hull, Yorkshire
Campaign: To encourage young people with cystic fibrosis to get fit

I was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when I was three years old and my parents were told that I wouldn't make it to the age of 16. 

 

I started karate when I was 14. It was a lifestyle choice - I didn't want to let cystic fibrosis debilitate me. 

 

I found that taking part in sports that I love could help add years to my life expectancy - I'm 22 now and I don't plan on letting cystic fibrosis beat me anytime soon. 

 

Exercise can really help people with cystic fibrosis and I started a poster campaign with Fixers to encourage other people with the condition to get fit. 

 

Affinity Sutton supported me with this Fix.
