Emily was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) when she was three years old. The doctors told her parents that 10-18 years was a likely lifespan for her condition. But science don't know. Emily is turning 28 this year and is a wonderful mother to our 4 year old son, Jake. CF is a progressive disease and she recently took a significant turn in her condition. She was recently put on oxygen while sleeping, but that quickly gave way to full-time oxygen dependency. While this is not a welcomed change, it is certainly not the end of the line. We have just recently met with the transplant team at Emory Hospital and are beginning to prepare for Emily's eventual double-lung transplant.
