Meet Steven Lee. A Man that has three full-time jobs. Father, husband and brings community and awareness through his financial services. But let's talk about why Stephen is on the project Sebastian podcast. The father of two children Rebecca 8 and Sampson 5, Steven works from home while taking care of his two children. One of which requires treatments twice a day for breathing to counteract the cystic fibrosis.
Cystic fibrosis affects the cells that produce mucus, sweat, and digestive juices. These secreted fluids are normally thin and slippery. But in people with CF, a defective gene causes the secretions to become sticky and thick. Instead of acting as lubricants, the secretions plug up tubes, ducts and passageways, especially in the lungs and pancreas.
Although cystic fibrosis is progressive and requires daily care, people with CF are usually able to attend school and work. They often have a better quality of life than people with CF had in previous decades. Improvements in screening and treatments mean that people with CF now may live into their mid- to late 30s or 40s, and some are living into their 50s.
With a desire to make the best of his life he puts his family first and devours any ounce of information on how to help others in the CF world.
