SALVATION FOR STEPHEN THROUGH BMX
“We certainly don’t wrap him in cotton wool, but it gives him a purpose and is a great help to his cystic fibrosis.”
Imagine you’re participating in a sport but feel limited due to the fact that you can’t keep up, you can’t breathe properly, you miss games because you’re too ill, and you mentally let yourself down because you’re not receiving the healthy benefits that come with partaking in sporting activities.
It’s a reality that many young individuals experience and for some, it is due to the condition known as Cystic Fibrosis (CF).
With the limitations that CF provides, regular exercise can be hard to come by and many who suffer from the condition give up on trying sport. But Stephen Posselt from Perth has found salvation thanks to sport on two wheels.
