My name is Luke Nelson, and I was born with cystic fibrosis. I was finally diagnosed at age 11 after going from doctor to doctor to find out what was causing my health issues and I am now 21 years old. I am currently moving into my 3rd year of college and transferring from ABAC to UGA in the fall of 2018 to pursue a degree from the Terry School of Business.
My focus is to work hard every day to stay healthy through a strict regimen of breathing treatments and pills to combat the effects of my disease. Those suffering from cystic fibrosis are extremely fortunate to have the specialized CF drugs available to help us stay healthy.
The treatments that allow me to live a healthy and normal life are available because of people like you! The funds raised in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation go directly to research and development of drugs to help me, and many others, live productive lives. Thank you for supporting Chaptacular and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!
