Diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis as a baby, Kendra Adderhold struggled to have a normal childhood. Her mother brought her to the Emory Cystic Fibrosis Center for treatment and, until adulthood, things were rather stable. But, after the birth of her son, Kendra’s situation started to change. Her lung function began declining quite rapidly and soon she would need a lung transplant to survive. Hear Kendra’s story as she describes her journey to lung transplant and how the Emory Lung Transplant Program has impacted her life.
