Description:
Our lives are precious. Never more so than for nineteen-year-old Alexander Stobbs who has been a cystic fibrosis sufferer from birth. For him, each day could be his last. But as he said in the acclaimed TV documentary - A Boy Called Alex - 'you can't do stuff if you're afraid'.

A truly inspiring story of a young musician determined to live his dreams, Alex takes us on his journey as he survives a daily round of drugs and treatments while also preparing to fulfil his next dream: to conduct Bach's three-hour-long St Matthew Passion.

Introduced here by his mother Suzanne, Alex's account of living with no certainty about his future is a spur to all of us to make every day count.
