Cycling and starring in our video
Melyssa was just 15 years old when she first discovered she had the rare lung disease, bronchiectasis. Struggling to breathe and maintain a normal childhood, Melyssa sought help from one of the Institute for Respiratory Health’s clinical researchers, Prof Phil Thompson. He provided advice and assistance in understanding and managing her condition.
Melyssa recently participated in the Delirium 24 Hour Cycle Race.
