At the age of 9, Eric Buchanan was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. He was fortunate that he was able to enjoy a normal, healthy life while attending Cardinal Mooney High School in Sarasota, FL and University of North Carolina Charlotte. He played football and enjoyed the simple things in life. When he was hospitalized the first time, he had to leave Charlotte and move back to Florida where he finished college at the University of Florida.
Eric has been a survivor through the ensuing years. After college, he had made a decision to work with a great company, Publix. He was busy getting acquainted with the company and building a future for himself. When his lung collapsed, Eric had to leave his passion which was his work, and start depending on oxygen.
He is now in need of a double lung transplant. With this surgery he will be able to get back on his feet and once again become a normal, young adult pursuing his interests.
