Today we meet Jessie Ennis, a 22 year old with CF who was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. Because of a family history of the disease, Jessie’s parents had her tested for CF before she was six weeks of age. In spite of CF, she had a relatively normal childhood – growing up with her brother and a series of foster kids – and remained healthy through high school.
- studies health and society in college,
- is currently visiting and working a summer job in San Diego,
- and has taken up surfing and skiing.
To learn more about Jessie and the ways she manages her disease while pursuing her goals, please listen to her podcast.
