Reaching Beyond the Clouds: Cindy Abbott to Kick off CRN Family Conference The Cystinosis Research Network is pleased to announce that Cindy Abbott will kick off the 2011 CRN Family Conference in San Francisco as our Inspirational Speaker on Friday, July 15th. On August 1st 2007 , she was diagnosed with Wegener’s Granulomatosis and on May 23rd 2010 , she summited Mt. Everest . With a rare and potentially life-threatening disease, at the age 51 and functionally blind in one eye she became one of the 400 Americans who have climbed the world’s tallest mountain. Her journey to Mt. Everest began three years ago but her story, like so many other victims of rare unknown diseases, started more than a decade earlier.
