  • Life hard?

    This is Claire Wineland she passed away yesterday September 2, 2018, after suffering a stroke during a double lung transplant. Claire Wineland has cystic fibrosis or CF as they call it.

    I just learned who she was just minutes ago before reading about her death on

    Claire Wineland did a TEDx talk which she talks about hard life is with CF and how to make a life for yourself.

    I saw a lot of parallelism with cystic fibrosis compared to a spinal cord injury in her talk.

    Some of those parallelism I experienced in my life living with a spinal cord injury for nearly 32 years at C6 and in 2013, respiratory issues which I have to do two 30 minutes sessions of pulmonary therapy, like medicine, everyday to keep secretions (mucus) out of my lungs.

    Her's her TEDx talk:

    "We must overcome difficulties rather than being overcome by difficulties."

    I, too, was struck by her death and the parallel issues involved. It's all CNS-related, no matter what the cause. I know a woman living with CF and the effects are devastating.
