Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month

Sometimes we often hear "But you don't look sick"... If only people had X-ray vision. 
May is Cystic Fibrosis awareness month and it just happens to be my Birthday month...coincidence?! I think not!! 😉 So please join me and let's make everyone aware...CF needs a cure!! This is my actual X-ray, I call these my pearly whites. The white is irreversible scarring from the mucus and the many lung infections which result in loss of lung function, my lung function is currently at 27%. 

CF is a genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and the digestive system. It causes our bodies to produce a thick sticky mucus. The mucus builds up in the lungs and can lead to life threatening lung infections. A CFers day consists of hours of breathing treatments, airway clearance, exercise, and handfuls of pills to try and stay healthy. 
We will continue to do our part, until that one day CF stands for CURE FOUND!! Breathe out love! Xo ❤
