Marten Devlieger is a 39 year old husband and father of 2 children ages 8 and 10. He was born in Zierikzee Holland. After being diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, a fatal genetic disease, his parents chose to immigrate to Canada where he resides today, due to hope for a better life with Cystic Fibrosis. Early in his life he became an adventure athlete: windsurfing, kiteboarding, snowmobiling, etc. He became a helicopter pilot at 18 years old and flew commercially for several years until hisCystic Fibrosis and CF liver disease got worse and the government took his license away. At that point he had to decide what direction in life he wanted to go. This led him to develop what is now the Monarch Airway Clearance System which is a mobile airway clearance system for people with Cystic Fibrosis which has greatly impacted his life and others’ around the world. Through this opportunity he was lucky enough to have the privilege to start public speaking around the world to encourage people to live an active healthy life with Cystic Fibrosis.
