I'm Emily DeArdo, and I'm really excited to be a member of the PFAB! I was diagnosed with CF when I was 11 years old, and I owe so much to the team at Nationwide Children's. Without their fabulous care and support I wouldn't be around today to write this! I was the first double-lung transplant recipient at Nationwide, back in 2005, and I recently celebrated my 11th transplant anniversary. After receiving so much excellent care at the hands of the CF team, I knew I wanted to be involved with the hospital somehow; the PFAB gives me a great way to give back to the hospital and allows me, in a small way, to contribute to the CF center and current patients.
