First tonight, Tim Pelerin is a Project Manager with Rocket Graphics in Watford – but Tim’s real focus is his 2-year-old daughter River, who has Cystic Fibrosis. Rocket Graphics and others at the Croxley Business Park supported Tim and the CF Trust with a special event held at the Park today, Thursday 8th February.
Mix Mornings presenter Iain Pritchard talked to Tim about how Cystic Fibrosis is affecting River and the family and how the event hopes to raise awareness as well as funds for the condition. You can donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust at www.cysticfibrosis.org.uk/

Explaining anything to young children can be difficult at the best of times, but when it comes to health and medical matters it gets extremely complicated. Nick Hazell was joined on Mix Mornings by Gemma Keir to talk about The Abiliites in me, a Stevenage-based charity which works to help children with medical conditions to understand them through illustrated books. Gemma explains why she set up the charity and how her books are now available around the World.
Finally this week, Sam Clarke met with Rebecca Wangi, who works at RW Osteopaths and specialises in helping pregnant women and young children. This interview was recorded as part of the St Albans BID focus on health.
