Raising a child with cystic fibrosis can present many challenges. We often find ourselves in a strange and unfamiliar world: communicating with medical professionals in a language we might not quite understand, administering medical treatments, navigating the insurance and medical maze, and dealing with the day-to-day stresses that chronic illness brings.
