Touching Lives - October 2011

This issue of Touching Lives features two families whose lives have been affected by an inherited disease that can damage children's lungs and airways. Little Malachi was given an early diagnosis but not all children are as fortunate, so Action is funding research to ultimately help speed up diagnosis.

You can also read about how a gift in the will of Gordon Walkinshaw helped the family of two-year-old Jack, who was born with a genetic eye condition called primary aphakia. 

Elsewhere in the magazine there are updates on our Touching Tiny Lives appeal, our research into a vaccine for MenB and projects on sickle cell disease, obesity, movement difficulties and preventing premature birth.
