This is Benjamin. He is 11yrs old, is in 5th grade, and is the toughest, bravest, kid that I've have ever known. Everyday, he fights a battle that most adults would never even understand. He has cystic fibrosis, and with a double copy of the most common, yet most deadly mutated gene. In his life, of just 11 years, Ben has overcome MANY hospital stays, surgeries, procedures, needle sticks, and daily routines of vest treatments and handfuls of medicines to ingest and inhale just to keep his head above water. He even, at age 6, volunteered to be in a trial study for the drug Orkambi, and was the first youngest CF patient to start. He still continues trials, which means added, frequent trips up to the hospital, on top of his normal check ups every 6wks. His determination, strength, love, and maturity are mind blowing, not forgetting his incredible imagination and humor are just so inspiring! He is a son, a brother, a nephew, a cousin, and a friend with a life expectancy handed to him at birth, of the measly age of 31.
