While watching the show America's Got Talent, I was very amazed that this two wonderful individual is suffering from cystic fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is common disease that will affect the entire body. One of the most common symptoms is difficulty in breathing. I was in tears while listening to their story because their physician told them since they were small that they will never be able to sing at all because of their illness.

Other sign of having cystic fibrosis includes having sinus infections, poor growth, infertility and diarrhea. Cystic fibrosis is the effect of a mutation in the gene cystic fibrosis Tran's membrane conductance regulator.
