My Fixers film was shown to around 150 healthcare professionals at a conference organised by the British Association for the Study of Liver in Gateshead on 16th September.
I've had some great feedback from people upon completion of my film and you can read some of these comments below:
Ruth: 'That was very interesting! Cystic fibrosis has touched my life like so many other people, the nurses do a marvellous job, thank you.'
David: 'Great video Leah. Well made and it's a great insight into the illness and the transition. You are a natural in front of the camera.'
Helen: 'Well done Leah. This will be such a help to so many. You're amazing!'
Anthony: 'Very interesting. I can honestly say transition was the best thing that ever happened in my life. I am now fully committed and motivated to moving on and taking 100% responsibility for my health and taking the pressures out of my parent's lives. I personally feel my personal life has taken leaps forward in the last three years since I went through the transition process.'
Suzanne: 'I liked the point the mum made about how after transition her daughter thought more about what she was going to do with her future. It is a very difficult time but you look back and you realise how much your child matures during transition.'
Gautam: 'Really glad to see others like me doing so well. Despite all the difficulties.'
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust have offered feedback on my film on YouTube. They describe the video as 'brilliant.'
