I am a 27 year old CFer living it up and trying to stay healthy in New York City. I moved here in 2004 to go to law school after a lot of moving around (Colorado, Texas, Boston, Atlanta, and even a stint in England). After graduating from Columbia, I spent a couple of years working full time as a lawyer on Wall St before recently taking a temporary "retirement" to focus on my health and my upcoming double-lung transplant. In the meantime, I'm volunteering 3 days a week at an awesome non-profit, spending time on the Young Professionals Board of the Greater New York CFF Chapter, helping out with fundraising projects wherever I can, playing with my puppy, reading, writing, teaching my mom to play scrabble, enjoying the summer with friends, and just generally trying to manage life and the challenges of this disease.

My blog is about me, my life, my sometimes craziness, my disease, and my current journey as a lung tx candidate. It's also a celebration of everyone out there with CF and all the mountains that they seem to move daily. Hey, it's just a matter of life and breath.
