54 Years Old and Living-Breathing Succeeding With Cystic Fibrosis


Today, you will meet Stephen Bell, a 30 year old with cystic fibrosis, who is an avid runner and exercise enthusiast. Stephen has run 8 marathons in the last 5 ½ years, and attributes his health to his commitment to staying active. Running – something that was once used as a punishment in other sports – has become something that makes him feel free, and gives him time away from everything when he is feeling overwhelmed.

This video podcast/vodcast was made possible through the promotional support and commitment from AbbVie to the CF community.
