|Summary, etc.:||"Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of three, Mallory Smith grew into a determined, talented young woman who inspired others even as she raged against her illness. Despite the daily challenges of endless medical treatments and a deep understanding that she'd never lead a normal life, Mallory was determined to "live happy," a mantra she followed until her death. Mallory worked hard to make the most of the limited time she had, graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Stanford, becoming a CF advocate, and embarking on a career as a writer. Mallory recorded her thoughts and observations, including the struggles and feelings she found too personal to share during her life, for more than ten years, leaving instructions for her mother to publish her work posthumously. She hoped that her writing would offer insight to people living with, or loving someone with, chronic illness"--|
Mallory Smith, who grew up in Los Angeles, was a freelance writer and editor specializing in environmental issues, social justice, and healthcare-related communications. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Stanford University and worked as a senior producer at Green Grid Radio, an environmental storytelling radio show and podcast. Her radio work was featured on KCRW, National Radio Project, and State of the Human. She was a fierce advocate for those who suffered from cystic fibrosis, launching the viral social media campaign Lunges4Lungs with friends and raising over $5 million with her parents for CF research through the annual Mallory&;s Garden event. She died at the age of twenty-five on November 15, 2017, two months after receiving a double-lung transplant. Mallory&;s Legacy Fund has been established in her memory at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
