My name is Shillane Labbett and I am a 37 year old double lung recipient. I was born with Cystic Fibrosis which is a genetic disease that affects the lungs and pancreas. When I was born, I was given 5 years to live. It then changed to 18 years and more recently people are living into their mid thirties.
