Mullingar mother camps outside Leinster House for daughter with CF


A local mother of a 15-year-old Mullingar girl who is suffering with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is currently camping outside Leinster House in Dublin, in the hope that it will speed up a decision on the approval of the drug, Orkambi.

The mother-of-three has described the treatment of CF sufferers and their families as “disgusting” and “terrifying”.

Hazel Robinson who lived in Mullingar for many years and where her daughter Gypsy, was born, said she was forced into taking drastic action – after recent deaths – in a desperate attempt to highlight the urgent need for the availability of a CF wonder drug to sufferers.
