Hazel was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at 3 weeks of age. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic, progressive disease that affects the lungs and pancreas. It causes excess mucus production which creates an increased risk for lung infections and illnesses. She has 30 minutes of breathing treatments 3-4 times daily and requires medication every time she eats. There is currently no cure, but together we are working to raise money with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to find a cure for Hazel and the rest of those impacted by CF.
