In this week’s cystic fibrosis podcast, 56-year-old Phil Wenrich shares his unique CF and lung transplant story. Before he was even born, Phil’s brother passed away from CF complications. Because of that, he started to hide the fact that he was living with cystic fibrosis because it negatively impacted the ways in which other kids interacted with him.
As he got older and started working in law enforcement, he continued to keep his battle with CF private – through jobs in patrol, motorcycle cop, undercover, detective, and more.
Tune in to the video to learn more about Phil’s career, his stress-relieving hobby of motorcycles, and his path to double lung transplant.
