Going on vacation without your child with cystic fibrosis can be hard, but here are some tips to help make it a little easier.
I decided that I wanted to live on the Caribbean island that I grew up on. Although it takes some planning and work, I'm thriving there.

If you have cystic fibrosis, don't waste your strength on the travel leg of your vacation. Save your energy for the fun stuff by asking for help when you need it.
With the holidays fast approaching, it's time to prepare for the change of schedule in your cystic fibrosis routine.
