Richard Was Worried About His Sons
Once Richard discovered that cystic fibrosis was a genetic disease, he wanted to ensure that his sons didn’t have the condition. Cystic fibrosis is not a mild disease and would tarnish the boys’ healthy lifestyle as they are known to like the outdoors. Richard thought more about his sons’ health than his own, which showed how much he loved them.
Richard didn’t want his sons to suffer just as he and his sister were from the disease and asked the doctor what his sons’ fate would be. Richard’s doctor didn’t know how to answer as the truth was brutal to reveal.
