Challenging the stigma of cystic fibrosis
Jeremie Saunders is an actor from Canada. He has cystic fibrosis, a terminal condition which severely damages the organs. The life expectancy of people with CF is low - when Jeremie was 10 years old, he read in a pamphlet that he would die at 30. He's 29 years old now and has launched the podcast Sickboy, where he, his friends and family talk openly of how to deal with terminal illness and death.
