At the AARC Congress 2017 meeting, Claire Wineland delivered a heartfelt keynote message on her experiences living with cystic fibrosis. Last week she underwent a lung transplant surgery and endured complications. On Sunday, Sept. 2, Claire’s struggle ended when she passed away. The AARC family cherishes Claire’s inspirational spirit, and we send our condolences to Claire’s family.
