Kelsey Lett is a 25 year old cystic fibrosis patient who was diagnosed at age 2, and has had countless doctor’s appointments and hospital admissions. In her spare time, she volunteers for the Champlain Community Care Access Centre in Ottawa. Kelsey has grown up in the healthcare setting and is a strong advocate, not only for herself, but for other patients who also battle this disease. She is currently on Orkambi™ for her cystic fibrosis, and hopes to advocate for wider accessibility for this drug in the future. Being sick has always been a part of Kelsey’s life, and she knows that she does not stand alone in this day-to-day battle. She hopes to help Cystic Fibrosis Canada for years to come.
