I am a male ballet dancer with Cystic Fibrosis that recently had a double-lung transplant after being on oxygen (24/7) for over six years.
I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) at age one. Started dancing at age 6, and danced for 20 years until I got really sick and was reliant on oxygen to breathe. I was on the transplant list for two years and finally got new lungs on May 31, 2013! I have danced around the world and will take my first ballet class again on December 2. Here is a link to a piece I did a few years ago when I was on oxygen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuLDm1XKiGU
I am also a recovering addict with over 3 years clean thanks to a life saving 12-step program.
