Before she started volunteering with the CF Foundation, the only person Linda Farrington knew with cystic fibrosis was her husband, Don Gouchie. Together, the couple has raised funds and awareness about CF for years by biking at their local CF Cycle for Life. But when Don was in his 50s, he was hospitalized for the first time for an exacerbation, and his lungs quickly began degrading. He was soon put on the transplant list.
Today, Linda looks back on their journey to lung transplant, the importance of the CF community, and shares why they remain in this fight until it’s done.
