Cystic Fibrosis is a terrible condition. One of those things you hear about, but never fully understand the implications. When my Son was 12 months old Doctors were convinced he had CF and its only then you look into detail as to how awful this condition is. After a multitude of tests, and a week of tears and sleepless nights, we were told that it definitely wasn't CF - a moment I'll never forget. He's now a strapping 16 year old and is thankfully as fit as can be. I shared a few cyber conversations on this message board with Dan. God bless my friend and rest in peace.
Thank you for the messages, I've been reading every one and it helps to know there's support out there. Also thank you to those who have donated even though you only knew him as a 'fellow Stoke fan' and left a lovely message for his wife to read.
I'd like to think he was still sat in his seat yesterday cheering us on regardless of the result x
Last weekend my best friend lost his long hard fight to Cystic Fibrosis at the age of only 36. He had been a season ticket holder for many years where we have many fond memories good and bad along with his Dad who's also a season ticket holder. He was a regular poster on here under the name of 'MrBlobbysDad' which says plenty about his fantastic sense of humour!
I know many on here would have probably chatted with him via this Oatcake Fanzine, which we both read regularly. Dan was a friendly and good person who had even renewed his season ticket as he was determined to fight on.
Despite the ups and the downs on with our beloved team it's gives us all a common interest and something we can share. I'll miss texting him with how awful or good we were after the game. Stoke have lost a fantastic fan who has left us far too soon.
We have a link if you would like to donate and leave any kind messages. The money will go towards fighting Cystic Fibrosis

Very sad news.
I organise a charity bike ride each year, as my friens's son was born with C.F. We've raised over £600,000 originally for CF Trust but now for CF Care www.cysticfibrosiscare.org.uk/ They are a CF charity aimed at raising funds for the actual care of the patients. Please advise family to seek these out, if they haven't already, for support they may need.
