Teen with Cystic Fibrosis Inspires on Sept. 10th Episode of ABC's 'Everyday Health' Series

In 2010, after narrowly surviving a deadly septic coma, Claire founded Claire’s Place Foundation, which offers C.F. patients dream trip assistance and/or extended ICU stay financial assistance for weeks-long and sometimes months-long hospital visits CF patients experience.
“I’m very excited about making a difference for other children and teens by sharing my experience, strength and hope with them,” Claire explains. “I continue to suffer many setbacks but I’ve learned that a positive attitude is the key to living a fulfilling life – despite living with such a horrible disease.”
Televised flash mobs, two thousands-strong, in Santa Monica, Calif., including one for ABC’s Everyday Health, plus a social network promoted ‘dream trip’ to Sitka, Alaska are among the Claire’s Place Foundation’s first projects.
Each week, Everyday Health profiles people who are either facing a health crisis or are close to someone facing a life-altering health event, and they are not wasting time helping others in a similar situation. Each program addresses a medical condition, sometimes includes a celebrity guest, and always provides a surprise reveal for the person profiled.
Hosted by a trio of health ambassadors--
