This should be the reason they feel breathless.
Jim spends his days filling prescriptions and helping people take care of their health, hardly pausing to catch his breath. Six-year-old Marilou is breathless but invigorated with ice-time. Blake loves to run until he’s gasping for air. Too often, cystic fibrosis is the reason they’re wheezing, needing to breathe deeply, unable to catch their breath. Too often cystic fibrosis takes away their better reasons for feeling the way they do.
