Abbey Mitchell, 18, from Falmouth, ME, is a freshman at Gordon College in Wenham, MA. Mitchell has Cystic Fibrosis, a life-threatening disease where mucus builds up in the lungs and digestive tract. As part of her treatment, she wears a “therapy vest” twice a day that shakes her body and loosens up the mucus in her lungs. Mitchell is also a cross country runner, which helps fight the disease.
