Sera’s hip hope for disease cure
SERA Taylor (26), who has cystic fibrosis, is participating in the Cystic Fibrosis WA’s 65 Roses campaign this month to raise money to find a cure for the disease.
Cystic fibrosis is a chronic disease, which primarily affects the lungs and digestive system.
Ms Taylor said it was difficult to live with her condition.
“You wake up, take your medicine; it’s so hard to get up and go out,” she said.
“If it is cold, I get quite sore and in summer, I could also get quite sore because of the salt in my body and my muscles could tighten.”
Ms Taylor said despite taking a rare medicine to treat her condition, her current health was worsening.
“In 2014, I had 33 per cent lung capacity and that is about the time where you need a lung transplant,” she said.
“I got refused the transplant… so it basically gave me a year to live in 2014.”
As a hip-hop artist, Ms Taylor held several fundraising events featuring hip-hop acts, comedians and auctions.
Ms Taylor is planning a Hip Hope for Roses event at Civic Hotel Inglewood for July.
Cystic fibrosis affected almost 4000 children and young adults living in Australia.
