Manny the Frenchie is a YouTube star. The talking French bull terrier has his own Facebook page and is followed by thousands of people—one of this people is New Orleans resident Joycelun, who is a huge fan of the adorable animal.

Find out nine ways that cystic fibrosis affects the body. 

Joycelun has had a tough time recently. She’s been battling cystic fibrosis since she was five months old and in recent years, her health declined so much that she needed to be on oxygen 24/7. She is currently recovering from a lung transplant, so to boost her spirits, her stepsister Katie decided to surprise her by organizing a visit from Manny.

Manny and his “dad” John, agreed to travel from Chicago to New Orleans to surprise Joycelun and to present her with a check for $500 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
