Chelsie Whibley Bio – Wiki

Chelsie Whibley is an ex-CBBC star, who is battling terminal illness fears that she might not live to see the end of the coronavirus crisis – and be reunited with her friends and family. She suffers from the incurable disease cystic fibrosis – an inherited condition that causes sticky mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive system.

Chelsie starred in CBBC shows Dani’s House and Sadie J, and in pantomime with House of Cards actress Kate Mara, before her career was cut short aged 20.

Age

She is 28 years old.

The former actress, from Denmead, Hants, has been ordered to quarantine indefinitely because she is at such a high risk of getting seriously ill from Covid-19.

The former actress, from Denmead, Hants, has been ordered to quarantine indefinitely because she is at such a high risk of getting seriously ill from Covid-19.

Chelsie, who needs round the clock oxygen to support her barely- functioning lungs, said: “For me, every day is so precious that spending them under lockdown is like having them stolen.

“It feels like even more time is being taken away from me.

“It’s just heartbreaking beyond words.

“I know that seeing my friends and family is too dangerous and it could be enough to tip my body over the edge.

“But on the other hand, I don’t know how much time I have and it breaks me knowing I can’t see them.

“I love them all so much and I just want to be with them because I know I don’t have long left.

“I’ve got a month-old nephew who I haven’t met and I do worry I never will.

“I fear that I won’t have time to make memories with my nieces and nephews and that they won’t remember who I am”.

Home Treatment

Chelsie must now undergo intensive intravenous treatment at home after her specialist hospital unit was given over to coronavirus patients.

The state-of-the-art respiratory diseases unit at nearby Southampton hospital – where the air is filtered to avoid viruses being transmitted – is instead being utilized by Covid-19 patients.

Chelsie, whose mum, Pam, has been permitted to move in to help provide care, said: “I should be in hospital now but the ward I’m supposed to be in is being used for coronavirus patients.

“I can understand the reasons why but it doesn’t make it any easier.

“I’m scared about the interruption in my treatment and my care.

“I’m worried that the plan for my future treatment is going to slow down, halt, or just be forgotten about because we’re all so concerned about coronavirus.

“My condition doesn’t just pause or suddenly go away because of coronavirus. It still continues. I don’t have months and months to wait.”

She added: “In the hospital, I’ve got the best care right at hand but at home, I don’t have that.

“I’ve got none of the facilities I would usually need. And that is terrifying.”

Husband

Chelsie is married to Glyn. He is 32 years old.
