There have been many TV shows and films that portray what Cystic Fibrosis is really like. Some are a lot more realistic than others.
Which are your favourite/least favourite and why?
In the UK we have hospital shows. Casualty and Holby city among my favourites, occasionally they do a story about a CF patient and there are always so many holes to pick in it.
In America you currently have the Red Band Society. I've been watching it aswell. I'm addicted to the storyline but again they don't really portray Dash, the kid with CF, very well.
The documentary, 65redroses was really good. I think because they had someone with CF telling the story.
What other shows are out there, are there any good ones worth a watch?
