Short of Breath, Not Courage: Cystic Fibrosis
Wednesday, July 22, 2015
Brother and sister, Morgan and Meade, were diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis before they were even born -- a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. What followed was a daily routine of 15 to 25 different medications, airway clearance three times a day, and twice-yearly hospital visits. In 2013 Morgan received a lung transplant, and her brother, Meade, is being closely monitored for one as well. For them, living with Cystic Fibrosis is a family affair, and today they join us today to share their stories.
