I open my heart and welcome opportunities to practice balance in the midst of suffering. I embrace all emotions and know I am steady and strong. I find comfort knowing each moment passes and a new emotion emerges. As I set my intention for calm, I breathe in positivity and release negative thinking. That is where my balanced soul resides. That is where I find peace.

In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond.
