I had to update my review to comment on this amazing last episode. Reef’s story was deeply moving. Giving your time and money to a cause is a very personal choice. I appreciate how you are really showing us how different life experiences can all lead to the same goal. Keep it up!
So far I’ve been able to listen to one and a half episodes and I love it! I am so impressed with anyone who gets so involved in CF or any disease awareness and then applies it to life in many ways. I have CF myself and I am a huge fan of making hospital life comfortable and full of activities. It’s so important to be happy and motivated for recovery. I am slowly getting more involved with the CFF and I am so happy with the work and positivity that all CFF workers and volunteers show in making Great Strides. So many thank you’s!

If I didn't begin listening to the podcast at work, I would have cried after listening to episode 1. My sister is 24 and living with her boyfriend, who she's been seeing for a couple years now. She has regular hospital visits and is lined up for a lung transplant. The story definitely resonated with me. Thank you for this.
