SMITHSBURG -- Kaelii Stout seems to have it all. The 16-year-old Williamsport High School student is a soccer player and a runner on a Maryland state championship-winning relay team. She is bright and articulate, and dreams of becoming an elementary school teacher. She was excited to go to her high school prom Saturday night with a group of friends. Though she's got all this, she also has something else that is decidedly less coveted. Before she was 2 months old, Kaelii was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, an inherited respiratory and digestive disease that causes thick, sticky mucus to build up in her lungs and digestive tract.
