I was diagnosed with CF at about 7 months old. And only have been hospitalized 2 times since birth. And the last time was 31 years ago. I grow up being in sports and band. Also went for walks, hikes, and bike rides. My parents tried their best with keeping me busy and healthy. Along with making sure I take my meds and chest treatments.

Now I am married for 12 years and still do my meds and do my Vest treatment. Also do my quarterly checkups.
