When I first heard there would be a movie related to Cystic Fibrosis I was excited to see how they would tell the story of 70,000+ of us who live with this illness everyday. Here I will review the movie 5 Feet Apart from the perspective of a CF patient. As you know if you saw the movie, the movie’s main characters are a boy (Will) and girl (Stella) who are living in the hospital full time. Stella is waiting for a double lung transplant while Will is in a clinical trial to combat his B. cepacia.
Sarah is both a patient and an enthusiastic supporter of the CF Bridge of Hope and shows how she accepts no limitations in living her life with Cystic Fibrosis. Watch as she reaches to the sky to test her will and overcome any trepidation and, in the process, experiences what is hidden from many.
