Get To Know Bobby

LET ME TELL YOU A STORY...

I've been aware of my breath since I was born. Aware of the pain and the hurt that accompanied each inhale. I've seen my life go by in every breath. 

Inhale...

Cystic Fibrosis. Why did I receive your diagnosis? You always make it so hard to breathe. 

Exhale...

I raised a child. 10 months of love. 10 months of pride. 10 months of fatherhood. Until a DNA test showed that I wasn't. It was too painful. I couldn't stay, I had to return to breathing, something slightly less painful. 

Inhale... 

I suffered from depression and suicidal thoughts. Not being able to get over the loss of my father. October 21st 2014 is a day I'll never forget. One I don't want to remember. 

Exhale...

I'm healing. It's a process. There's pain in my power, trials are my treasure, and this mess that I call my life is my message.

Inhale...

Make sure to breathe. Live out every day like it's the last shot that can win the game. Die when you're supposed to instead of living out every day until it's over. Die knowing you played until the end. 

Exhale...

Walk with me. Heal with me. Breathe with me.
