Dr Ian Banks has not been able to hold his grandson Lorcán since he was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) as a newborn baby.
In a cruel twist of fate, the former A&E doctor has a long-term lung infection that could be deadly for the three-year-old.
It also means he can no longer hug his daughter Jen, who is Lorcán’s mother, due to the risk of cross-infection.
But the family has been given fresh hope following news that a ground-breaking drug Kaftrio will become available on the NHS.
