Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.When Emma was born 15 years ago we couldn't believe our eyes! We were looking at the most beautiful girl we have ever seen! Unfortunately she was born with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) which is the ugliest thing we've ever seen! Cystic Fibrosis is a disease that causes your lungs to develop a think sticky mucus in the lungs, cause your pancreas not to work and often causes you to develop diabetes and a plethora of other things to your body! Emma has been in and out of the hospital her whole life and has fought ever step of the way! Emma has had a Feeding tube and a permanent port for over ten years. She also developed CFRD (Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes) which means she became a fully insulin dependant! Emma has taken CF head on and has never stopped playing softball or dancing!
