Hi my name is Kinley and I have Cystic Fibrosis. Most people that see me think I'm a normal healthy little girl but what they don't see is everything I have to do to keep up that appearance. Every morning when I wake up I have to take medicine for my allergies, probiotics, and extra vitamin C. I have to take 4 enzyme capsules every time I eat anything to help digest and absorb my food properly. I have to take 2 albuterol nebulizer treatments, 1 pulmozyme nebulizer treatment, and 2 CPT vest treatments everyday to keep my lungs clear. I also have to have extra salt throughout the day and extra vitamins at night. Every night mommy and daddy pray with me and we pray for a cure for CF and I know that one day our prayers will be answered!!!! :) Thank you everyone for your continued love, support, and prayers!
