Child with Cystic Fibrosis Wins Trip to Walt Disney World

Anthony and Ryland stay positive

Despite the challenges associated with living with cystic fibrosis, both Anthony Zimmerle and Ryland Gallagher do their best to maintain a positive outlook. In a lot of ways, both boys live a relatively normal life, with a few exceptions. As his grandfather noted, Anthony has to undergo daily treatment and maintain a cocktail of medications to maintain his health. For both the boys, there’s also the ongoing risk of developing infections in the lungs that could be serious and potentially debilitating.
