My youngest son has cystic fibrosis. He was diagnosed at age nine. I dragged him around for two years knowing something was wrong with his health and visiting doctors who didn’t believe me. Finally he had a sweat test and it confirmed that indeed Matt had CF.
CF is a disease that effects people in many different ways; some much worse than others. Our family is fortunate to be among the lucky ones. With the latest in state of art medications and a commitment to dedicated self-care, my son is doing well. (poo poo poo!) He also knows that life is fragile and he can only control so much. He lives with the knowledge that things could change. He is courageous, strong and miraculous. Now that he is grown, he has made his own commitment to support CF research and reaches out to help others.
Together we hope to raise dollars to search for the cure! You can help too! Donate to CF right here on my site. Also, for every book sold, 20% goes to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We are living for the day when CF= cure found!
