Today, you will meet Brayden Merrill, a 14-year-old with cystic fibrosis who stays healthy by playing soccer, track, and cross country. For someone so young, he is very open about his disease and uses it as a reason to train harder – uses it to his advantage as a motivation. His younger brother Noah (8) also has CF, and Brayden does everything he can to be a good role model and to teach him how to stay healthy.

Today, we meet Sabrina Walker who is 30 years old living, breathing, and succeeding with cystic fibrosis in Anchorage, Alaska. Growing up, her parents encouraged her to stay active and play sports – not allowing her to make excuses about why CF would stop her. Sabrina’s mom is the person who sparked her love of running in order to keep her lungs clear. Not only does Sabrina battle CF on a day-to-day basis, she is also a cancer survivor, wife, and mother who keeps a positive attitude through it all.
