April 15, 2008

A story featuring the experiences of Jeff Davis, a 35-year-old with cystic fibrosisand many adults like him who have outlived everyone’s expectationsran in the Baltimore Sun this week. The article focuses on the dramatic improvement in life expectancy for CF and the growing adult CF population, served by expanding adult care centers in the United States. “If there’s a miracle in this story,” the article says, “it’s that Davis is fairly typical…”

Davis works as a machinist and lives in Maryland, with his wife and two young children. Advances in research and care have made it possible for people with cystic fibrosis to live longer, attend college, have careers and raise families of their own, the article notes.
