Today, we meet Chris Peacock, a 26 year old native of Durham, UK who loves sports, poker, and spending time with his girlfriend and friends.
– Chris suffered a collapsed lung in 2011.
– He stepped out of his comfort zone and started dedicating time to exercise and now walks/runs 2 miles every day.
– Because of his health issues, he is on home oxygen. But after starting his exercise regime, he only uses it at night and hopes that one day, with continued fitness, he will not need it at all.
– Chris says that his friends generally don’t treat him any differently, but don’t fully grasp how serious his disease is because he never lets it slow him down.
