when a cf child reaches 18 and transitions into being an adult

My husband and I would love to hear from parents/caregivers with a CF child transitioning into the adult world. We are nervous about all the changes we're facing. Insurance is a big issue.
We are the grandparents with legal guardianship of a teenager who has lived with us for almost 11 years. Any comment or advice from those of you who have experienced this situation would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Thank you for taking the time to reach out to our community. While I can't speak specifically to this, I wanted to share some articles that I think may be helpful as you and your husband take on this transition with your grandchild. I am also hoping some other community members will chime in and share their experiences. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any other questions, we're here to help! Sending positive vibes your way. -Beth (Team Member)
