I'm really enjoying the opportunity to tell the story of Shealie Rain, who is three years old and was born with cystic fibrosis.
Seeing what she and her single mom, Samantha, have to go through everyday with medications and treatments is both heartbreaking and inspirational. Shealie has to take 20-30 pills a day, and her 30-minute-long daily vest treatment (which are needed to clear mucus from her lungs) are absolutely no fun.
I've certainly learned a lot this week about CF and how it effects 30,000 Americans.
Stay tuned next week for the promotional video I'll be producing on it.
And hanks to the East TN chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for hiring me!
