In this video by Tiffany Rich, learn more about her struggles of going to school with cystic fibrosis.

“My name is Tiffany Rich, and I am a twenty-six-year-old living with a life-threatening disease called Cystic Fibrosis. I am currently listed on the double-lung transplant list, and decided to document my journey while I wait for my second chance at life!

A few months ago, I posted a picture on social media that ended up going viral, and led me to my number 1 bucket list item: TO MEET TAYLOR SWIFT! Because of all the love and support I received from people around the world, I was able to make my dream become a reality. Through this process I found I had hundreds of people wanting to know my story, and I felt this was the perfect platform to document my life with cystic fibrosis, as well as getting awareness out for this disease and organ donors.”
