This month's Hero of Hope Living with CF, Kate Sneddon, 16, is an exceptional teen who is balanced, positive and compliant with all treatments that her chronic disease of cystic fibrosis demands. She was named a Hero of Hope, not only because of her dedication to her health, but also because of her academic, community service and athletic accomplishments. She is also an excellent student with an "A" average, a talented artist that has displayed artwork regionally, a dedicated volunteer for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and a hardworking athlete in several sports.
"I wouldn't call myself a super teen by any means, but I strive to do my best so that I can be proud of everything that I do," said Kate. "In a way, CF has given me perspective. I'm not glad that I have CF, but it's helped me to be glad for what I have versus wanting what I don't have."
