You never know when one random act can change the life of someone forever. We are happy to introduce you to Curtis.
He has cystic fibrosis and is a 6 year survivor of a double lung transplant that he received Christmas Eve 2009. The last two years of his life prior to transplant were spent in and out of the hospital. He was in the hospital more than he was out, getting sicker and sicker.
Six months before the transplant, he told his social worker that his digital camera had broken. Photography was the only thing that kept his mind off of the fact he was dying from his CF. The social worker asked Pascale's Pals to replace his camera and we said yes.
Today Curtis is living his dream as a photojournalist. He was able to graduate from MSSU and is now employed with their University Relations and Marketing dept as a photographer. He has his own freelance work, and shoots whatever he can. Some of his photos depict other friends who live with CF, and how living with this disease affects people.
We are so happy to share that he is living his dream, in part, thanks to Pascales Pals & generous donations from all of you.
