I went through my first surgery recently. I want to share what I learned during my recovery.
Zoey is a student at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas. She plans to major in psychology and minor in music. Zoey has been playing the violin ever since she was 7 years old and has never let her cystic fibrosis interfere with her passion for music. Zoey also enjoys eating pizza, hanging out with friends, and shopping at Target. While cystic fibrosis has had some negative effects on Zoey, she never gives up on her treatments and always maintains a positive attitude. She likes being a good role model and hopes her positivity helps others.
I went the first 17 years of my life without being hospitalized, but CF caught up to me when I had my first “tune up” last year. As much as I thought I knew about what it would be like, I wasn't prepared for how that first hospitalization would feel.
