Best in Show: Youtube Patient Leader Hero Lifetime Achievement


Best Team Performance

These two (three) never fail to lift my spirits! In just sharing their everyday life as patient and caregiver (and service dog) on their daily vlogs they have captured the heart of thousands, and no doubt raised huge amounts of awareness for cystic fibrosis. Although Mary is the one who is ill, these two are truly a team in everything they do!  — Christina

Mary and her husband, Peter have been advocating for people w/ Cystic Fibrosis as well as people w/ invisible illnesses and those w/ service dogs for many years. They're a wonderful Christian couple who share their journey w/ the world. Their mottos are "Laugh Every Day" and "Choose Joy". Their lives mirror God's love and give so many people hope.  — Melissa

In particular, I am nominating my dear friend Mary for this award. She is indeed a patient leader hero....and MORE. Mary's faith in Christ and in healing (whether on this side of Heaven or the perfect side) represents true commitment, resilience, and strength to me and many. Mary is a LIGHT for so many with chronic illness. She embodies true hope.  — Kenzie

Mary always no matter what her days are, could be a good day or bad and she always tries her best to smile and keep moving forward.
