Janine Marnien Mary Claire Garcia was born a year to the day her mother last kissed her sister good-bye. Mary never met her sister -- Claire Evangeline Domino died of cystic fibrosis before she was born -- but that hasn't stopped Mary from feeling like she and Claire have a special bond. "My mom's told me so much about her and I've seen videos and pictures and learned her personality through those things," said Mary, a freshman at Crescenta Valley High School.

Claire E. Domino was only four months old when she was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, the number one genetic killer of children in the United States. Throughout her short life, she battled chronic lung and digestive maladies, coughing so hard that she had to have surgery to correct a double-hernia. Though born in New York, she lived in Montrose for most of her 9 ½ years, attending Fremont Elementary, becoming a Brownie and Girl Scout. Claire died on February 20, 1987. Her sister, Mary Claire, was born a year later to the day and though she never met the sister that played the flute and proudly soloed "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," Mary Claire wants to help conquer this disease while honoring the memory of her sister.

Mary has also heard about Claire's struggles with the disease. And when the opportunity to help researchers find a cure arose, Mary jumped at the chance.
