Growing up, I remember always watching my grandma suffer. Suffer from things like having trouble breathing, always having a wheezing cough, constantly being constipated and depressed. As a little girl, I had no idea what was wrong. That was until my mom explained to me that my grandma was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. At this time, I was old enough to understand a littler better. I was able to educate myself. And with Walgreens, I can Navigate the Journey Together. I no longer fear the diagnosis and neither does my grandma.

I remember the day my mom told me my grandma was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. I was devastated. That was without even knowing exactly what Cystic Fibrosis was. Well, Cystic Fibrosis is a really complicated, lifelong condition that affects approximately 30,000 adults and children in the US at any given moment. Cystic Fibrosis affects the digestive and respiratory systems. With treatment and adhering to a medication ritual daily, patients can live wonderful lives, while carrying this disorder. My grandma is on a strict daily medication regiment and with support from amazing programs like Walgreens Cystic Fibrosis CF Champions, she lives a healthy, normal life! She is actually happy and looks forward to my visits.

It's companies and organization like Walgreens Cystic Fibrosis CF Champions that really help those with Cystic Fibrosis learn how to best handle their disease, offer medication and therapy advice, aid in the confusing nature of insurance, and offer patient assistance to make life wonderful again. CF Champions really does help my grandma's life become manageable and gives her control of the disease!

If you or someone you know has CF, or is a caregiver for someone with CF, you know how frustrating it can be when the support you offer isn’t enough. Now, with CF Champions, you can become part of a much larger support system! A support system even my grandma understands and loves. Become a CF Champion, and fall in love with the amazing resources that Walgreens has to offer.

Always remember, keeping a healthy diet, ritually taking medication suited for you (and learning how to administer them), watching for signs of depression and maintaining a great support system can help you lead a normal, happy and healthy life like my grandma lives! Navigate the Journey Together, with Walgreens, and let them show you, like they showed me and my grandma that Cystic Fibrosis doesn't have to slow you down in life, because there are resources and support out there!

  11. CF is a crippling disease that I would love to see eradicated. I lost a good friend just after she turned 18 to CF and even now, after over 15 years I still can't get past what a great loss it was.
