CF Podcast 150: Sean Sullivan, Being Compliant with Cystic Fibrosis
Today we meet 40 year old, Sean Sullivan, who was diagnosed with CF at 16 months after his parents grew concerned about his chronic cough and lack of weight gain. Sean is the oldest of six kids and is the only person in his family who has CF.
ï He grew up extremely active – playing basketball, baseball, and swimming.
ï His doctors encouraged his parents to treat him the same as their other children.
ï From a young age, he learned to be not only medically compliant but also stick to an active lifestyle.
ï Now 6 months post transplant, Sean is even more vigilant than ever while taking care of his disease and its new challenges.
