Fargo native and international performer Matthew Thibedeau died Wednesday morning after battling cystic fibrosis for several years.

"He was a gift from God," says Thibedeau's mother, Mary Schroeder, who spoke of his wisdom and "boundless energy."


According to a Facebook support site for Thibedeau, the "life expectancy for cystic fibrosis is typically 30 years, but Matthew made it beyond 35."
