What Does Being a Hero Mean to Someone with Cystic Fibrosis?

There are real heroes out there!

Though not every patient wants to be called a hero, Brad says that there are true heroes out there that have cystic fibrosis. To him, these are patients who have went on to start up foundations to raise money or organized awareness campaigns. Some have even gone to school so they can study cystic fibrosis and discover a cure. For example, Cody Sheehan is a hero who has cystic fibrosis - he dresses up as a superhero to raise awareness of the disease and promote organ donation. Brad thinks that Cody truly is an inspiration for everyone.
