Talking Youth


May 5, 2021

This episode is quite the special one and is landing at a very opportunistic time.

This month of May, 2021, is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month and in this episode I have the most incredible conversation with South Australia's 2020 local hero Emmah Money.
 
Emma was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis as a newborn and her biological parents were told she would barely survive childhood and subsequently put her up for adoption.
 
Now, 32 years later, this inspiring woman has defied all odds and has a list of achievements under her belt, including motherhood, which so many professionals advised her against.
 
Emma has fought long and hard to get the critical CF drug Orkambi on the Australian PBS list and at age 17 wrote and published her own book titled "The Words Inside," which speaks of her struggles with bullying and depression growing up.
 
Emma is the founder of CF Mummy and devoted to supporting those with CF who want to have children.
 
The list is endless, and during this conversation we unfold, unravel and explore the journey of this warrior and the impact she is making on so many lives.
