A WOMAN with cystic fibrosis who was nominated for an award after raising more than �17,000 to help fight the disease has missed out on the top prize.
Newport fundraiser Ros Evans, 28, was shortlisted for a Breathing Life Award which recognises the achievements of people who have cystic fibrosis.
Despite not winning her category, Ros said she enjoyed the star-studded ceremony at London's Hilton Metropole held last Thursday.
Ros, who was diagnosed with the disease at the age of three, has been raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and this year she held a 12-hour Lindy Hop marathon with members of the Cambridge Lindy Hop club despite being on intravenous drugs at the time.
