Catie Marucci

My name is Catie Marucci, I have suffered with Cystic Fibrosis my entire life. I was born on September 14, 1991 and was diagnosed on April 1, 1992. Unfortunately, it was not an April Fools joke. My parents were told by doctors that I most likely would not live past my 13th birthday. That was the average life span of someone born with CF at that time. Since I was born, I’ve been in and out of the hospital, had too many doctors’ appointments to even count, my lung function was all over the place getting as low as 55%.

However, thanks to the money raised for research for CF through fundraisers like Feastival, I am now 30 years old, a college graduate, working full time, married to the most amazing man, and a mom to a 1-year-old boy! I am confident that all of this would not have been possible without access to the medication I am on that was created from the money fundraised from events like this one. I wanted to become an ambassador for CF to spread awareness about this disease and the importance of fundraising for this cause. We will not stop until CF stands for Cure Found!
