Caleigh is a beautiful 23 year old from San Francisco, CA who also has Cystic Fibrosis. She is currently awaiting the call for a double lung transplant. Just a glimpse at her blog, Facebook, or Instagram gives the world a glimpse into her passionate will to breathe bravely.
Please enjoy her beautiful journey:
"When I think of my journey leading up to this point of needing a double lung transplant to survive, it is similar to the process of making a warm chocolate soufflé; I've made this dozens of times in the several kitchens I have been blessed to work in. I, as well as the soufflé, start as an egg. We both enter into life with goals. Mine: to be a good person, make myself proud, be a great athlete, become a pastry chef and defy the odds of Cystic Fibrosis. The soufflé: to rise.
In just the 6 quick months I have been following Caleigh and her story, she has battled blood clots, blood infection, G.I. issues, CFRD [CF related Diabetes], and many unyielding effects associated with end stage lung disease. Yet, she has a love for life that is intoxicating. Many days, her posts seem as if it were my own voice being reflected on the page in front of me: dreams of the future, a thirst for life, and making every breath memorable with people so dear. Thank you so much Caleigh. Love to you all.
Please follow her journey to transplant with end stage CF and consider donating to her fight.
