There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe.
Our two little loves, Calleigh (10 years old) and Ryder (8 years old), are just 2 of these 30,000 who struggle. They do treatments twice a day with a vest to help them break up mucus that can get stuck in their lungs. They also do multiple nebulizer treatments to help thin the mucus as well as open up their airways. Both of them take anywhere between 16 and 24 enzymes with any type of food with fat or protein in order to help them digest. Not to mention the 6-12 other pills (anti-inflammatory, allergy, modulators, digestive, etc.) they take daily to keep them healthy. These are just some of the ways we cope with the disease.
