A True Inspiration: Breana Schroeder

I’ve never met a 14 year old girl as inspiring as Breana. At a young age she suffered from complications and wasn’t growing as steadily as the normal child. When her mother, Caryn, was finally able to get a diagnosis, doctors discovered Breana had CF or Cystic Fibrosis. For those that do not know, CF is a life threatening disorder that damages the lungs and digestive system.

This however has not slowed her down. We found Breana through tandem surfing. Her and her partner are an incredible duo that do not come in second place. Their technique and trust in each other show in their fluid form. The Mauli Ola Foundation is the reason Breana got into surfing. They help children with cystic fibrosis learn to surf because the salt water and fresh air is an amazing natural healer. In addition to surfing, Breana loves to do gymnastics/cheer leading, swim and be active. She’s an incredible athlete and excels in every sport she tries. You would never know from meeting her that she had a life-treating disorder that stops most people from doing what they love. Breana and her tandem partner are competing in the ITSA and will hopefully make it to Hawaii to compete for the World Title! We wish them the best of luck! XO, Shelby
