66-year-old Help Hope Live client and Ambassador Jerry Cahill has lived five decades longer than doctors predicted when he was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at age 11.

A lifelong athlete, Jerry is no stranger to pushing his body and mind for a cause. As CBS reported, he celebrated 11 years since one of three life-changing transplants in May by committing to a 40-mile charity bike ride.

Jerry will co-host an upcoming Hope Talk on Thursday, May 11 about his journey, offering his advice on finding strength and hope to patients, families, and supporters navigating the challenges of a medical crisis.
