I posted question about there being very little awareness as far as Cystic Fibrosis is concerned. Cystic Fibrosis is 1 of the top most lethal diseases in the United States 2nd only to Diabeties. The information I read on this didnt state where Cancer falls. My life has been impacted by all 3 of theses diseases. I have 2 neices with type 1 Diabeties one of them went undetected at birth which caused her to go blind, deaf and be mentally chalenged, my father, his father, a brother, and my sister Dee who also had Cystic Fibrosis that caused her to get type 2 Diabeties.I had 2 grandparents who died from cancer, and a sister who had it. I dont think its fair for 1 disease to get more attention to others even if it means saving the Titantic or 1 person on a row boat wouldnt you want to save them all? I have come in contact with MANY KIDS with CF 2 of them being my sisters Misty&Dee who have both passed away. I want to make people more aware. I have a plan would you help? In their memory.
