    I dont think he has CF the same as alot of us. Its stupid to think hes at 98% from hard work. If you have CF like the rest of us all the hard work in the world wouldent allow to achieve that it would be physically impossible. I think if your that healthy theres no need to even say u have CF. Bit like sayin ur an alcoholic but have half a lager every day.
