The Most Inspirational Cystic Fibrosis Journeys

Briana's story

Briana Collichio, age 10, wants to be an inspiration to others who also battle CF. She urges them to stay strong.

Briana is a very expressive and precocious young lady. She casually informs us that her mucus is “thicker than everyone else’s.”

Briana gains comfort from nestling into the fur of her long-haired pet dog.

She plays the piano, loves to sing, and often shares her amazing voice at local public events such as ball games.

Briana describes CF as the condition that locks her down, and her singing as what frees her.

Her advice is: “CF doesn’t have to hold you back.”
