As many of you know, our founder Danitsia was born with Cystic Fibrosis. At the age of 5 her family was hit with a disastrous event in where she lost both her brothers, Junior was 21 and Rey was 12 at the time, to a fatal car accident in Venezuela. The death of her brother Rey had always been a looming day in the life of her family because Rey, like Dani, was born with Cystic Fibrosis though he was misdiagnosed most of his life and did not achieve the diagnosis until age 7. By then the damage to his lungs had been significant and other organs had been affected. Once the tissue in your lungs has been scarred and damaged beyond function, it cannot be reversed. Rey was on the verge of multiple organ failure and was put on a double lung transplant list, a liver transplant list, and a kidney transplant list. The odds of Rey surviving past the age of 18 were slim to none.
