Jerry Cahill – Keynote Speaker at CFFC Education Day
CFFC is pleased – and excited – to announce that Jerry Cahill will be the keynote speaker at this year’s CFFC Education Day (June 8, 2019). Jerry’s positive outlook on life with CF is reflected in his “You Cannot Fail” program.
Here’s Jerry’s biography as shared on the CF Foundation web site.
Jerry was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis in 1967 at the age of 11. Currently a CF Ambassador at the Boomer Esiason Foundation (BEF), Jerry leads its scholarship and grants division and is the founder of Team Boomer — the athletic arm of BEF dedicated to encouraging exercise among CF patients while simultaneously raising money for scholarships. He has also started the program You Cannot Fail, which includes apparel, a website, an autobiographical coffee table book, and two children’s books. On top of all of this, he records educational podcasts and videos and encourages other people with CF to share their stories on Club CF. He has completed two 500-mile “Bike to Breathe” bike tours. Jerry believes that exercise is the single most important thing in his life that keeps him healthy with CF. Follow Jerry on Jerry Cahill’s Cystic Fibrosis Podcast.
