I was diagnosed at birth with Cystic Fibrosis and spent several weeks at Riley Hospital with my family so that they could learn to take care of me.� Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease and the number one genetic killer of children and young adults.� The disease causes excessive production of thick mucus.� This causes sinus complications, severe lung infections, pancreatic & intestinal issues, as well as potential liver, kidney, and reproductive problems.� The key to living with Cystic Fibrosis is prevention and one of the main reasons I’ve managed to cope as well as I have is because of the early diagnosis and treatment.

“Healthy” treatment started with pancreatic enzymes every time I eat, albuterol nebulizer treatments, and chest physical therapy which knocks loose mucus in order to be coughed up and excreted. These treatments take up to an hour, twice a day.� As my disease progressed over the years, stronger enzymes were needed and more nebulizer treatments were added to my regimen: antibiotics, steroids, etc.� “Sick” treatments start with a minimum 3 day hospital stay with treatments as often as every 4 hours and IV antibiotics, followed by home IV antibiotics for at least 2 weeks, sometimes lasting months.� Eventually, I needed a feeding tube to maintain my weight and oxygen while I slept, which then led to oxygen with activity and then oxygen all of the time.

On March 10, 2014, I received a double lung transplant.� I no longer need several of my treatments, but take more pills (easy trade off in my opinion!).
In this time I graduated from Purdue with my Bachelor’s in Construction Management, worked in industry for several years, and finished my MBA before transplant.� Since transplant, I have again worked in industry and most recently, started my PhD at Purdue, researching sustainable communities.
I strive on my independence and struggled with not being able to do everything I have wanted due to my physical limitations and needing to rely on other people to perform daily tasks.� I’ve learned what motivates me to care for my health, makes me feel better, and helps me accept me as me – who just also happens to have a disease.
