Living with Cystic Fibrosis: The Importance of Community

 

Like my sister, I share the excitement of witnessing plans unfold to premiere our documentary film, The Power of Two, on Link TV in May. May is National Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month, so the timing is perfect. Did you know that cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common life-threatening genetic disorder in caucasian populations? Approximately one in 25 people of European background carry the gene for CF and could potentially have a child with it if they marry someone who is also a carrier. So it is more common than most think. My hope, like Isa's, is that we can use our film to inform the public about this illness (including the culture and lifestyle that comes with it) so it is less of a mystery.

A Childhood Dream Come True: Raising Awareness of Illness

 

When my twin sister and I were young teenagers and spent many weeks of our lives in the hospital for tune-ups related to cystic fibrosis (CF), we encountered numerous ignorant comments about our disease. After about the tenth time someone asked, "How did you catch your CF?," we were exasperated. The option of a Make-A-Wish Foundation grant was offered to us. Ana and I together wished more than anything that we could spread the word about CF.
