This picture is shortly after we found out that Brennen had CF. It was a very emotional day for our family. I was told Brennen had wet lung and would die. I then found out that he did not have wet lung and we could go home. I know something is wrong. My words to Drs for months. Finally I read medical books and I just knew it was CF. A visit to Albany Med confirmed my diagnosis. I’m proud that I did not give up and listen. I’m not happy that I was right but happy that now we can start the medication to help his digestive system and his lungs. Now move the clock ahead and Brennen is now 33. That is many nights in a hospital room . He starts his day with a breathing treatment that will be done four times a day. He then will take 10 enzymes just to eat anything other than fruit. He will need to put a vest on 4 times a day to loosen his mucus that builds into his lungs and causes him to cough hundreds of times a day. This turns into exhaustion. All while trying to work and have a life with family and friends. I am missing so much of his daily routine but this is to show you why I beg so hard for donations. As a mother I want to see my son happy and living without feeling sick. This is where I need all my friends and family to help. I need your prayers but I also need your donations. As this is the only way to get research done and to help find a cure for all with CF
