Cystic Fibrosis Podcast 230: Meeting the Family of Her Donor

In the latest CF Podcast, Auburn Volz – 30 years old living with CF and post double lung transplant – shares her journey with the disease and the unique story she has with the family of her donor.

Just six months after the life-saving surgery, Auburn wrote a letter to her donor’s family thanking them for their generosity and sharing the things she’d been able to do with her new lungs. On the way to her one-year appointment, she received a response letter that led her to finding the Crist family. Eventually, they met face-to-face and have been able to find comfort in that relationship.

“At the end of the day, I’m here. I’m living. And I have a little boy to thank for that.”
