I was climbing in Alabama with my southern crew and one day while doing my treatments at Horse Pens I met Justin. He came up asking me questions about my nebulizer and I was in no mood to fully explain myself so I was relieved when Drew spoke up and said “oh he has Cystic Fibrosis” Justin put out his ciggarett and said he had dated a girl from Quebec that has CF and was also a rock climber. The conversation got really exciting from here. I was having a rough day and somehow felt less alone knowing she had been here at HP before and probably knew the garbage weather i was stuck in waiting for a nice day to climb. Her name was Marie and she was 34 and was reasonably healthy. Her Brother also has CF and was on the transplant list. Thats about all I knew but every time I saw Justin we spoke of her and how he would help us find each other on FBook. I was thrilled when she sent me a message. She reviewed my old website and it really inspired me to get my new site up and going so we could chat on there about CF. Our conversations are so interesting I am sure many people would love to know more about our stories and how similar they are. Her FEV1 is measured differently or at least called something different. But she says she is at 70% and in the 50’s when she is sick. I am so excited and so is Ben Smith of kILO hOTEL pRODUCTIONS. As I write this on March 13 I am on my way to Bishop California to climb and he texts me that he too can’t stop thinking of how interesting it would be for us to meet and not be able to touch each other. I envision so many scenes in the film and can’t wait to see her. I’m interested to see her tiny climber body, and to hear her speak french. Ha, is there anything more sexy?
