Introducing LeeAnne- Little Stars USA

Introducing LeeAnne, one of the stars of our Little Stars project.  We had the great experience filming with LeeAnne in Boston last year.  LeeAnne is 34 and doing an amazing job of living with Cystic Fibrosis, a life limiting illness she was diagnosed with at age 2.  During our time with LeeAnne and her little dog Curly we gained some real insight into life with this illness and were blown away by her courage and tenacity.

LeeAnne lives with her fourteen year old son and husband and despite her condition she has an incredible outlook which she attributes to the support she gets from her palliative care team out of the Boston Children’s Hospital.  We look forward to sharing more of LeeAnne’s story with you in the coming months.
