Kylie was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of three. Slowly her lungs became weaker and she spent more time in hospital and needed oxygen, until she became so sick she needed oxygen 24 hours a day and was put on the waiting list. It was an extremely difficult time for Kylie and her family including her fiancé Troy, who proposed to her when she was extremely sick and lifted her spirits.
After Kylie got her new lungs she is able to go to the gym, swim and do all the things that she used to do. She is now dedicated to promoting organ and tissue donation and is also an ambassador for Cystic Fibrosis.
