Declan was born on Feb 23 2014 and has been anything but ordinary from the start. He was almost a month early, then decided to do a brief stint in the NICU. When we finally brought him home we got the phone call about his DeltaF508 mutation. After months of test and doctors visits they found that he also has a P67l mutation. While he has two mutations he has no symptoms to date. We are in the "gray" area of the CF world. which of course shouldn't surprise us. So while we are unsure of what will happen as he gets older we are grateful to be apart of this community because whatever bumps we see down the road we know the CF foundations works tirelessly to help families with medications and treatments, as well as fund research for life saving medications.
