It’s May… CF Awareness Month! Throughout the entire month, Breathe In will be featuring several people with CF or people who play a role in improving patient health and wellness in each episode. This week’s episode features Chelsea Spruance, 26 with cystic fibrosis, and Karen von Berg, a physical therapist at Johns Hopkins who works with cystic fibrosis patients. Chelsea, otherwise known on Instagram as @Salty_Yogi, talks about using Yoga as a way to build strength to recover from severe illness, becoming a Yoga instructor, living in the US Virgin Islands, and how she’s able to manage CF care so far off the grid! Karen, who was, at one time, Lea’s physical therapist, talks about how PT can be useful for people with cystic fibrosis trying to build respiratory and physical strength.
