Cystic Fibrosis Cycling

Cystic Fibrosis Cycling (RSA)

After receiving a prognosis of a 10year life span at the age of 8 months, Jason Van’t Slot is celebrating his 20th year of living with Cystic Fibrosis by cycling the beguiling and gruelling ABSA Cape Epic in 2015. He is supported by his father and manager, Barry Van’t Slot and his close friend and team mate, elite debut triathlete, Philipp Sassie.

Born as a twin, one with the disease and the other without, Jason’s story is one of a family who has had to deal head on with a twist of fate that would test their mettle under a ticking clock. Jason wants to share his struggles and his triumphs, to enhance the lives of others living with cystic fibrosis, by serving as a living example that the disease need not be a death sentence. Through positive and rigorous living, and the benefits of early detection, Cystic Fibrosis is a challenge that can be overcome.
