ONE REPUBLIC schreiben einen song für CF kranke Kinder: I LIVED

The video is dedicated to a 15-year-old fan of the band, Bryan Warnecke, who suffers from cystic fibrosis. Bryan Warnecke talks about living with cystic fibrosis in the music video:
Cystic fibrosis is a disease that attacks the digestive system and slowly shuts down the lungs. I've been doing my treatments everyday of my life, so to me, it’s just one of those things that’s normal. My name is Bryan Warnecke and I've been living with cystic fibrosis for fifteen years. . . . When I first found out the life expectancy for the first time, it really scared me. Right now, it's about thirty-six. It’s just one of those things that really makes you appreciate life. It makes me appreciate where you are, as a person. I want to make the most out of my life and have as much fun as I possibly can and my biggest fear is not being able to do that.
In the video, Warnecke is seen bicycling, skateboarding, playing hockey and taking part in other leisure activities to make full use of his life. He also explains the fear of living with the disease. "It feels like I'm breathing through a straw," says the victim. "Whenever I try to breathe hard, it hurts. I want to make the most out of my life and have as much fun as I possibly can and my biggest fear is not being able to do that." The clip ends with Tedder driving Warnecke to the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado to watch Tedder and the band perform live. A postscript notes that in 2014, "Bryan and his teammates have ridden over 1200 miles and raised $300,000 for Cystic Fibrosis research," and refers viewers to the website of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF).
