"Cystic Fibrosis Awareness In 10 Minutes Or Less" - A Spoken Word Piece

Whenever I'm asked to be a keynote speaker at any event, it's my responsibility and honor to represent thousands of people living with cystic fibrosis through unique presentations and performances that leave their mark on the every person in the audience. You see, I'm not just sharing my story...I'm sharing OUR story. The 70,000+ members of the CF Community are on stage with me for every word and every moment. They make me stronger and I appreciate their gift to me.

Such was the case when I performed this spoken word piece in New York City at a fundraising event for the Christopher Ricardo Cystic Fibrosis Foundation back in April of 2013. This was the first and (as of this posting) the only time I've ever performed it in front of anyone. As a matter of fact, this is the first and only time I've ever written and performed a spoken word piece in my life. It wasn't a flawless performance, but it was honest, raw and from the heart. At the end of the day, that's all that really matters. If you speak with passion, the rest takes care of itself.

I hope you enjoy my words and that they inspire you to help our community achieve the greatness we work so hard for every single day.



Peaceful Things,

Josh

  2. Josh, So well done! Your talk was not just informative, not only powerful but from the heart-to the heart. When -ever that happens we cannot forget. You have a gift. Keep using it. I hope you give this talk many times over. I know I will listen to it again and encourage others to hear it. God bless you in all that you are doing.
