Born in St. Louis, Mo. but raised in Wichita, Kan., Lizzy was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at 4 months old. The youngest of three, and the only child with CF, Elizabeth's health began to decline during her sophomore year of college, causing her to withdraw from school and move home. In 2014, Lizzy moved to the Bay Area to focus on her health but with the progression of her disease, Lizzy was put on the UNOS list for a bilateral lung transplant. On February 1, 2019 Lizzy received the gift of life from her donor. Now post-transplant she can pursue her passions again of traveling, writing, photography, reading, advocating for cystic fibrosis and organ donation, and buying too many sweaters for her little dog, Tucker. You can find her chronicling her journey of living on Instagram: saltywoman65.
