Bio: In many ways I am your average 24 year old guy. I am attending the University of Dallas and studying English. I'm Roman Catholic. I'm an Eagle Scout. I love playing tennis and ultimate frisbee, and I lift weights pretty often. I have never been out of the United States, but this May I am headed to Lourdes, France for a pilgrimage! I also happen to have a genetic disease called cystic fibrosis and had a really successful double lung transplant on June 15, 2015. It has been an absolute blessing. My recovery has been nearly complication free and I am breathing easy! Before transplant I had 14% lung capacity, but now I am in the 95 to 102% range. This blog has multiple purposes. One, to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. I want anyone reading my blog to be closer to Him after reading it. Two, to inspire other people. I want to inspire my fellow cystic fibrosis warriors to stay positive, and also those with great health to give thanks. Three, it's a way of motivating myself and holding myself accountable. There is so little margin for error between my health, spiritual life, education, and social life that I need an outlet to aid me in being the best person I can possibly be. Four, I enjoy writing so it's also a fun use of free time.
