Australian Jockey’s Life Transformed by Miracle Drug

, Australian Jockey’s Life Transformed by Miracle Drug

From 'Sick Kid' to Successful Rider

Australian jockey Harry Coffey has opened up about how a miracle drug has transformed his life. Coffey, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as a baby, has thrived in the saddle despite the challenges of his condition.

The Impact of Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects the lungs and makes sufferers more vulnerable to illness. As a child, Coffey would spend a week in the hospital every year for check-ups. However, this hasn't stopped him from achieving an incredible 821 career wins and nearly £15 million in prize money.

Racing During the Pandemic

While many industries were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, Coffey found solace in racing. He believes that the strict protocols in place made it one of the safest places to be, as few people contracted the virus. However, he still took precautions and isolated until given the green light to ride again.

A Game-Changing Miracle Tablet

Coffey credits a new drug called Trikafta for completely changing his life. This medication tricks his body into thinking it has a missing gene, CTFR. Taking two tablets in the morning and one at night, Coffey has noticed significant improvements in his health and performance.

Improved Quality of Life

Thanks to Trikafta, Coffey no longer experiences shortness of breath or fatigue after races. He has better recovery and more energy to do everyday activities. His quality of life has improved at home as well, allowing him to fully enjoy time with his wife and newborn baby.

While the miracle pill has greatly improved Coffey's life, it unfortunately cannot cure sleepless nights. But with his newfound health and success, it seems that Coffey is truly living his dream.
