Sarah Hitchings

Quite by accident, I ended up watching “An Abbreviated Life” a couple of nights ago. It is a documentary about Sarah Hitchings who is 19 and has cystic fibrosis, which means her life expectancy is around 32.

I found the documentary truly captivating and especially Hitchings. It showed her warts and all – a lovely beautiful young woman, but also one with temper tantrums, frustrations, family stresses and of course her struggle to cope with cystic fibrosis.  The producers have done a superb job of letting it speak for itself without over dramatising it.

I really recommend people see the  documentary if it screens again.  Also to make a donation to Breath4CF.
