Full Bio

Gunnar Esiason, 26 years old, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis – a genetic disease that impacts the respiratory and digestive systems – at age 2. Since then, he went on to be a decorated high school athlete, graduate of Boston College and has since become an advocate for the Boomer Esiason Foundation.

Gunnar is the namesake for three different cystic fibrosis centers, at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Columbia University Medical Center and Morristown Medical Center respectively, as well as several different college scholarships for people living with cystic fibrosis.

An avid reader, he started writing in 2014 for his blog, Own It – focusing on his life with cystic fibrosis. The blog has since expanded to include a podcast, Making it Mater with Gunnar Esiason and Julia Rae, in which he and his co-host, Julia (also living with CF), discuss healthy living and strategies they use to cope with chronic illness. He has had featured in Sports Illustrated, on ESPN and digital articles on MMQB.com, CNN.com and CBS NY Local’s website, among others.
