My name is Elli Burris. I am 21 years old and I was diagnosed with CF when I was 15 years old. It was quite the change to go from a “normal” teenager to someone living with a terminal illness. But my diagnosis has caused me to never take a day for granted and to be a stronger person. I got married to my husband, CJ, this past summer. We have two crazy pups, Tucker and Poppy. They are so much fun and we love taking them for walks when the weather allows. I am a college student at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I am studying animal science and plan on continuing my education after my bachelors degree. I work on a goat dairy milking goats and taking care of them. It is such a fun job! My husband and I love to travel and go on adventures together. One of our favorite places to go together is Michigan. I look forward to you all getting to know me more in the next couple of months!
