Yes, you have seen this picture before, but it is still one of my favorites. Tonight we had to choose a picture to share with a Cystic Fibrosis Event called Corks and Kegs for CF. They are putting together a little slide show to show and promote the event and they wanted Dannika to tell others what Cystic Fibrosis was in her own words. Her words are too sweet and cute not to share.
"It's a disease but you can't catch it form me. It's kind of like breathing through a straw. Most people have to take enzymes but I'm lucky and don't have to yet. Sometimes I cough a lot and if I catch germs from someone it's harder for me to fight it and I end up in the hospital. Your mom has to have one half of the moon and your dad has to have the other part of the moon and if you have CF when you are born it means you got both halves of the moon. It's not so horrible to have CF. Some people say it is, but they just see it in a different way. If you have CF just now that God made you special and He doesn't make mistakes." Dannika - age 9
