    I was very close to a family who had a child w/ cf. I knew them quite well and i know how important it is for these patients to to their daily therapy routine and take all their meds every day. It really makes me quite sad and i hope this girl will learn to take care of herself. Could be very bad circumstances around this. For some reason i find it very upsetting.
