Hi Tiffany, I am saying a lot of prayers for you to have a very successful recovery. I so pray that the transplant helps you. I have a son that is now 14 years old & he has 65 Roses as we have always called Cystic Fibrosis. We are also natives to AZ from S Scottsdale to now we are in E Mesa. We know what you have to go through & also feeling alone because never hear any one else talk about it well he does a lot of times as he is very energetic seems like he is normal until the weather does like it has lately & he gets wiped easily then he gets upset . I heard about you from Dave Pratt on his FB your story is an inspiration for us. Your accomplishments are great & your photos are beautiful. I am so happy that you were able to get the transplant even though our state cut them. Prayers for a long happy future for you.
