My son has what has been labeled as a mild case of CF by his doctors. He is 14 years old and in excellent health. He was diagnosed at 2 years old after not minmial weight gain. But once the CF was detected and he started on treatments his health has improved tenfold. To my delight he has newer been in the hospitial for any CF related issues and has not needed antibitoics at any time for lung infections. he is able to go on 10 mile mountian bike rides and be ahead of me most of the time. Sports have been a great asset for his health. The biggest benifit to date is him starting on TOBI it has improved his lung functions by leaps and bounds. There are mild cases of CF out there but for the children I think it is hard to understand and deal with day in and day out.( I hear over and over treatments agian yuck) There will come a time when all of these children will no longer have to worry about or feel the effects of CF. Until then to all CF sufferers and their families keep the faith that soon there will be a cure of a new treatment and to all the researchers people contributing to finding a cure you have my upmost respect and admiration.
