“We always have to have hope that things will work out in a good way”

When I was 8 months old, I was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. Growing up in the heat of North Carolina I lived a normal, active childhood. Living with cystic fibrosis became more challenging during my late teenage years when I developed CF related diabetes. I have been able to overcome the most difficult of days by maintaining a positive attitude, following my doctor’s orders and, most importantly, being as physically active as possible.

During my years as a high school student at New Hope Academy, I learned the importance of routine exercise and being compliant with my healthcare. By participating in routine physical activities such as tennis, swimming and jogging on the treadmill, everyday I have more energy, less stress and an overall improvement in my ability to live a full life.

Now, I am 26 years old and I continue to put my healthcare first. Currently, I am a full time “online” college student and working towards receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications from the University of Phoenix in 2012. I hope to use the knowledge I will gain in college to educate and encourage members of the CF community.
