I was diagnosed with alpha 1 in December 2016 after all other tests regarding my symptoms drew a blank.
Having never heard of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency I began Googling and found this group. A year or so after joining the Facebook group I was honoured to be asked to join the Board in August 2017.
My main hobbies are holidays, reading and walking around golf courses!. Having spent over 20 years in corporate travel I have been fortunate enough to visit many wonderful places and ended my travel career living in Spain and working in Gibraltar. I am now back in the UK with my 13 year old son, Oscar, who is the golfer of the family and which is why I spend so many hours walking around golf courses.
