The movie Five Feet Apart was inspired by Claire Wineland. The movie’s main character, Stella, showcases Claire’s charismatic and fighting personality. In this honest, raw, and often emotional conversation, Laura talks to her mom, Melissa Nordquist Yeager, about Claire, Five Feet Apart, and life without her daughter. Claire Wineland lost her battle with Cystic Fibrosis in September of 2018, before the release of Five Feet Apart. It’s a frank, touching and inspirational conversation.
