I hope you enjoy your experience here and that it inspires you to always keep chasing your dreams!  We never know what life has in store for us, who will come into and go out of our lives, what challenges we may face, or what actions may affect us, but never give up and always look to find a way.  It's not easy, for sure, but you can do it.  I know you can!  So, with that being said, hop on over to the music page, listen to some tunes and relax!  Let your mind wander and your body rejuvenate!

I am inspired and admire many people.  They are thinkers, dreamers, creatives, activists and more. 

They all have done amazing things to benefit humanity.  Some on a level that makes them recognized on a grand scale

while others maybe only by a few people or only me, but all have impressed me in various ways. 

I share some of their wisdom, in rotation, with you here.

 

I thought I'd share a little about a subject that is very near and dear to me.  It's about the people who developed Trikafta, a medication that is a true gamechanger for people with Cystic Fibrosis.  Sabine Hadida, Paul Negulescu and Fredrick Van Goor at Vertex Pharmaceuticals in San Diego, California, developed the treatment by combining different drugs that help a faulty protein to function.

"Trikafta is a “transformative medication which is going to significantly improve outcomes for people with cystic fibrosis,” said Dr. Mike Boyle, senior vice president of therapeutics development at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which funded the early research on Vertex’s cystic fibrosis drugs.

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disease in which thick, sticky mucus builds up in organs including the digestive system and, most seriously, the lungs. It is often fatal in early adulthood. Most previous treatments have only slowed the inevitable decline of patients’ lungs. Trikafta increased the amount of air patients could expel from their lungs in one second by an average of 14%."
