Health and Happiness

This year has been incredible for multiple people with CF. Some veteran and some new comers to the scene who all deserve equal respect for their accolades.

A friend of mine came across Hailee Lucas. This inspiring woman is an NPC bikini competitior and an amazing athlete.
Hailee is the first female competitor with Cystic Fibrosis in the fitness/physique world that I have ever came across and I hope she is the first of many.
This is another huge step in the right direction proving that CF does not have to rule our lives.

Jerry Cahill is 56 years old with Cystic Fibrosis and underwent a double lung transplant a few months ago.
His recovery has been incredible and he continues to coach polevaulting and work for the Boomer Esiason Foundation in the USA.
This man is one of the most tenacious people I know and his motto is ‘YOU CANNOT FAIL’

Ben Mudge is A 22 year old fitness model from Northern Ireland and has made a huge impact by recently featuring in the one and only ‘Men’s Health Magazine’.
I share much in common with this young athlete and have to give full kudos to him as I always dreamed of featuring in Men’s Health since I was a teenager.
Watch out for more from this man.
