Charles Michael Duke Gives Interview About Life With Cystic Fibrosis
In a recent interview on celebmix.com, Duke explains that he was diagnosed with the condition as an infant. His health remained relatively stable throughout his childhood and teens but deteriorated quickly following his 18th birthday. His lung function has declined so much that he’s been on the transplant list for the past two years.
Last year, the 22-year-old wrote and recorded the official song “Part of Me” for the #DonateMate organ donation campaign. The online campaign aims to encourage people to become an organ donor, tell their family about their decision to become a donor, and finally, to encourage one other person they know to do the same.
In the interview, Duke talks about life with cystic fibrosis, his positivity and how much a lung transplant means to him. You can read his full interview here.
