Andrea Hoffman and Alyson are twins born with CF. Andrea is 30 seconds older than her sister. The women attend Ohio Northern University. As you will hear, they are over achievers!
This is the twin’s Senior year of college. Andrea plans to attend law school after she graduates. Andrea advocates on the state and federal level. And she sits on the Rare Disease Advisory Council (RDAC) in Ohio (the RDAC is something Michigan has yet to pass). Andrea received her second Bonnell Foundation Education scholarship this year, and will speak at the Foundations September 30th gala along with her sister Alyson.
Alyson also attends Ohio Northern; received a scholarship from the bonnell foundation. Alyson has a triple major, and also a minor degree. Alyson says she enjoys in person sharing about CF, rather than sharing her story on social media. She does a lot of public speaking about CF. As you hear these women speak you will be inspired by their energy and you’ll realize, they’re going to change the world in many ways.
Both talk about staying healthy during a pandemic, doing treatments at college and much more. Lets get this conversation started!
