What if you found out that your life may be over by the end of your 30th birthday?
Denise was born with a chronic illness called Cystic Fibrosis and has been told very early in her life that she might not live longer than 30 years.
Knowing this can be a huge burden and a mental block – or you can live your life just like Denise in freedom and to the fullest. On her Facebook Page you can see her beautiful profile photo and her description that states the following quote:
“If you can’t believe in miracles, then believe in yourself. When you want something bad enough, let that drive push you to make it happen. Sometimes you’ll run into brick walls that are put there to test you. Find a way around them and stay focused on your dream. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
― Isabel Lopez
Having known Denise for a bit now, I know this quote is 100% hers. If it wasn’t Isabel Lopez that said it, Denise would have been the one.
Listen to her inspiring story of how she is dealing with her chronic illness, what brought her to travel as much as possible and what she is writing about on her blog Travelous Mind.
Denise has also a new project that we are going to talk about and I am SUPER excited to be able to support her and spreading the word. Don’t miss out and tune in to find out what big project is coming soon!
What is Cystic Fibrosis? The Mayo Clinic provides a great overview on their website:
“Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disorder that causes severe damage to the lungs, digestive system and other organs in the body.
Cystic fibrosis affects the cells that produce mucus, sweat and digestive juices. These secreted fluids are normally thin and slippery. But in people with cystic fibrosis, a defective gene causes the secretions to become sticky and thick. Instead of acting as a lubricant, the secretions plug up tubes, ducts and passageways, especially in the lungs and pancreas.”
