Letting hope trump fear during the Covid-19 pandemic is what keeps double lung transplantee Justin Reynolds going under lockdown.

In March 2017, the now 54-year-old Rathfarnham man with cystic fibrosis (CF) was days from death when the transplant gave him a second chance at life.

It is holding on to the blessings that such a gift brings that helps him through the weeks of isolation he is now going through to keep safe.
