My name is Luke Nelson, and I was born with cystic fibrosis. I was finally diagnosed at age 11 after going from doctor to doctor to find out what was causing my health issues and I am now 23 years old. My health is great thanks to the drugs and treatments developed over the years through research funded by generous contributions to The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and research supported by the Foundation.
I graduated from The University of Georgia Terry School of Business in May of 2019. GO DAWGS! I am now employed by CCA&B, LLC, better know as Elf on the Shelf. Our company is a proud sponsor of Chaptacular and enthusiastically support the fight to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. I am very proud of my company and the great people that make up our organization.
My focus is to work hard every day to stay healthy through a strict regimen of breathing treatments and pills to combat the effects of my disease. Those suffering from cystic fibrosis are extremely fortunate to have the specialized CF drugs available to help us stay healthy.
The treatments that allow me to live a healthy and normal life are available because of people like you! The funds raised in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation go directly to research and development of drugs to help me, and many others, live productive lives. Thank you for supporting Chaptacular and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!
