<p>Little Harriet Corr, seven, is fighting fit again after enduring years of coughing fits, and a weakened immune system - linked to her condition.</p><p>With her health declining, her mum, Emma Corr, 42, campaigned for seven years for her daughter to be granted access to the drug Orkambi - available in the US.</p><p>Emma teamed up with a group of parents whose children have cystic fibrosis to lobby the government to get the drug available on the NHS. </p><p>Their first victory was when Orkambi was made available in October 2019 and then another drug, Kaftrio, was also green-lighted in February 2022.</p><p>As soon as Harriet started taking the drug in February 2022, there was an "overnight" transformation in her health. </p><p>The schoolgirl is now able to run around and keep up with other children her age, has gained weight and no longer is kept up all night coughing. </p><p>Her lung capacity is now 120% after plummeting to a frightening 67% at her worst.</p><p>Emma, a teacher, from Hebburn, Tyne and Wear, said: “It’s not an exaggeration to say I didn’t sleep for the first seven years of Harriet’s life.</p><p>“I would sit up all night by her side as she would cough.</p><p>“Campaigning to get the wonder drugs available on the NHS is what pushed me through as I would email MPs throughout the night.</p><p>“I get scared speaking about it in case I jinx it, but it is absolutely amazing to see how far Harriet has come from this time last year.”</p><p><br></p>
