As sisters, there is a lot that we share. But as cysters, there is a lot about our individual experiences with the disease that set us apart. Today on the blog, we wanted to address a hot topic in the CF community -- the upcoming Five Feet Apart movie -- and share our different perspectives in anticipation of the film's release next week.

Watch our vlog below to hear our thoughts, questions, concerns, and more as we tackle topics such as infection prevention and control (IPC), anxietygerms, the Five Feet Apart book, and what the community has been saying about the film.

Check out this discussion guide the Foundation created to help people with CF and their families talk about the movie.
