- congests the lungs and causes scarring, decreased lung function, and life threatening lung infections resulting in hospitalizations, endless usage of antibiotics and drugs, and ultimately respiratory failure.
CF is such a complex disease that not only impacts the lungs and pancreas, but every part of the body: heart, sinuses, kidneys, liver, reproductive organs, and the skeletal system just to name a few more. Because there are over 1,800 different mutations of CF, it can be difficult to give a single comprehensive definition.
I’ve never been one to do things simply, so why should CF be any different? From the most complex and confusing parts of my life to the most simple, all are what make my journey unique and beautiful: CF and all. Love to you all.
- The Great Strides Walk is looking for volunteers to help set up and tear down. Come and help us make this day most incredible for all the families and friends fighting for a cure for CF. Please message me for details on how you can help share goodness for all impacted by CF. firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on Facebook.
