The Upside of Down

Susan Biggar fell in love with a New Zealander. Maybe as an American, she saw Darryl as a ticket to an exhilarating, global life. When her first son arrived, he came with fierce blue eyes, a curly toe and cystic fibrosis. The doctors said he would be lucky to reach the age of thirty.

When Susan's second baby was also born with cystic fibrosis , the insignificant worries of her old life slipped away, shifting her from 'normal mum' to 'gotta-figure-out-how-to-keep-the kids-alive-mum'.

Since that time Susan has been a dedicated supporter and advocate of cystic fibrosis research at Murdoch Childrens Research Institute.
