Bread & Butter is a monthly dinner and storytelling event designed to make you think deeply about social issues. A new storyteller every month will share a personal story with 40 guests in the dining room at the Centre for Stories. Come along and make new friends, hear a new story, and get to know your community. Compulsory: open ears and an open mind. This month's storyteller: Sandi Parsons.


Not Everyone Gets a Second Chance

Sandi Parsons considers her guardianship of gifted lungs one of her many victories in her ongoing battle with Cystic Fibrosis. Sandi was 38 when she underwent a double lung transplant. She will be sharing with us her story about her battle with Cystic Fibrosis, and the fulfilling life she has managed to create for herself despite its ongoing challenges. In her own words: "Despite society’s expectations, which disabled me far more than my body did, I have outlived my expiry date many times over." Sandi currently lives in Western Australia with her husband and a ‘To Be Read’ pile of books so high that they frequently threaten to cause a book-a-launch.
