CF Podcast 151: Self Management and Pursuing Goals with Cystic Fibrosis

 

Today we meet Jessie Ennis, a 22 year old with CF who was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. Because of a family history of the disease, Jessie’s parents had her tested for CF before she was six weeks of age. In spite of CF, she had a relatively normal childhood – growing up with her brother and a series of foster kids – and remained healthy through high school.

 

Now Jessie:

 

    • studies health and society in college,

 

    • is currently visiting and working a summer job in San Diego,

 

  • and has taken up surfing and skiing.

To learn more about Jessie and the ways she manages her disease while pursuing her goals, please listen to her podcast here .
