54 Years Old and Living-Breathing Succeeding With Cystic Fibrosis


In this podcast, Mary Cahill – mother to Jerry Cahill – sits down to discuss what it was like raising a CF child among her other “normal” children. She shares the story of his diagnosis and the subsequent decision that she and her husband made to treat Jerry the exact same as his siblings – encouraging him to play sports and get out and be as active as possible. This decision led Jerry to live an active, healthy, and successful life, enabling him to get to where he is today.
