Our 13-year-old may have Cystic Fibrosis

Oct 2007

Does anyone have information about cystic fibrosis and possible ramifications? We have been told there is a chance our 13-year old may have it because of a polyp in her nasal passage. We have been referred to a pediatric specialist. Obviously we are terrified. Any advice and information would be greatly appreciated. anon

Hi, My son has CF (Cystic Fibrosis). He was diagnosed at three mos old and is now two. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to e-mail anytime. Cystic Fibrosis is very much a manageable health issue. My son is a gorgeous, happy, smart little guy. I look forward to hearing from you! D.

Information about Cystic Fibrosis For the parent who wanted information on CF, my 7-1/2 year old daughter was diagnosed with CF prenatally. We are vigilent with her daily treatments and she is doing very well. Feel free to e-mail me! Also, I'd like to start a CF parents support group that meets every two or so months, a casual opportunity to compare notes and empathize. Please let me know if you're interested. Other CF parents are welcome to contact me, too. k.
