Meet Gary Reay – a 26 year old who grew up in Ireland with cystic fibrosis.
– He plays soccer and boxes – generally trying to get to the gym at least 4 days a week with his friends – and also loves music and DJing.
– After 19 years without an extended stay at the doctor’s, Gary fell ill and was hospitalized for 6 weeks.
– During that time, he lost a great deal of weight – leading him to the decision to get a feeding tube.
– He uses his feeding tube every night and has seen a major change in his ability to retain weight and has much higher energy levels.
