America’s Got Talent: Ali and Christina

Oops…we got so wrapped up in talking about Connor Doran on America’s Got Talent [and here] that we let these two lovely ladies fly right under the radar.

Ali (20) and Christina (13), sisters, come from a family of four kids, all of whom have cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affectst the lungs and digestive system. A defective gene and its protein cause the body to produce unusually thick and sticky mucus that:

  • clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections and obstructs the pancreas, and
  • stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.
