Ann-Marie Kavanagh has three children with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), who attend Temple Street Children's University Hospital, Dublin. When their children were younger, Ann-Marie and her husband discovered that there was little information available in a story format that explained CF treatment in an age-appropriate way.
'Catherine's Time to Shine' is an exciting and easy-to-read book that cleverly puts Catherine at the centre of the story and at the same time explains in a child-friendly manner why she needs to take her Creon and have regular physiotherapy.
'Matthew O'Brien: The Big Match' is Anne-Marie's first book. It covers the same treatment for CF but the central character is male.
