BECOMING CHRISTOPHER

Play dealing with the traumatic experience of a teenage cystic fibrosis patient and his family as he is forced to leave the pediatric team who has kept him alive since birth, and transition to adult medical care. Commissioned by Novartis Pharmaceuticals to explore the transitioning process for patients, families and care-givers. Premiered at the 2007 Cystic Fibrosis Conference, Anaheim, CA, directed by Daniella Topol.  The play led to a series of DVDs dealing with Christopher’s continued transition into adulthood, and to an informational and social networking website for teenagers with cystic fibrosis.
