My Experience with Cystic Fibrosis

“I want to use this blog to share some of my experiences so that hopefully when you, whoever you are, read this you can see the world as I see it. You can appreciate life as a whole.

The truth of the matter is that I was dealt a certain hand of cards, and I am making the best of it.”
