I wanted to pass along this article from the Atlantic, it talks to a woman with CF in her 30s who never thought she'd never live this long.  It also discusses current advancements in the treatment of CF:

Any thoughts on the article?  What do you think of the Vertex's new clinical trial?

It is so encouraging. It is amazing to me how many people I encounter (usually older than me) who are amazed that Sarah can do anything because their only experience with CF was someone who died in childhood 40 years ago, or "Alex: The Life of a Child."
