Representative Mike Mueller’s older sister was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) at four years old. Growing up with a sister having CF gave Rep. Mueller a lot of compassion for people living life with a health challenge, and impacted his life of public service. The two have a strong bond of love and understanding. It’s a heartfelt story about the fear about what CF does to his sister, his fears, pushing through it. Rep. Mueller also is the co-author of the resolution to make May, CF Awareness month (Rep. Jim Ellison is the other). Rep. Mueller is also the co-author, (along with Rep. Care Clemente and Rep.Jim Ellison) for the Rare Disease Advisory Council.
