Join Waldrop Walkers and help us get one step closer to a cure for cystic fibrosis!
Diagnosed late at age 57, I have never allowed CF to interfere with my life. I have a R117H mutation and was mislabeled with asthma for years. I am compliant with my treatments and meds, but love spending time with my 2 children and 4 grandchildren. My husband of 47 years and I have traveled to all 7 continents, and have wonderful memories of places and people we have met. I retired from teaching Special Education after 31 years and now at 68, I spend my time reading and quilting. Staying busy and focused on a goal keeps me positive as I look forward to the day that CF means Cure Found!
