My five year old daughter was recently diagnosed with CF. Since then we have been bombarded with information about the disease and have done alot of our own research.
I am trying to find a network of parents of CF children to regularly talk to about the little and big things involved with raising CF children and fighting the disease.
We see a CF Team at the CF Center through the University of Minnesota/ Minneapolis Children's Hospital. They have been very helpful and informative.
If you are interested, please post a reply with your email address, etc. Thank you and God bless you all.

I am Andrea and my daughter is 5 & 1/2 with CF. She was diagnosed at 9 months. Feel free to visit our family site at http:groups.msn.com/teamRachelJane or contact me at JohnDrea@msn.com

or go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cfparents That is a wonderful group of parents, patients and loved ones who support eachother and ask/answer questions, and generally give you a place to voice your concerns. If you have a problem or question, the chances are that someone there has been there or done that already and will be happy to offer thier experience.

Hi, I have a 17 year old son with cf. It has been a long journey and as he gets older it seems to get even longer and harder. Does anyone out there have any suggestions on how to deal with a teenager with cf.

My husband and I just found out that we are both carriers of the CF gene.  We had planned to start a family in the next year or so.  We obviously now have some difficult decisions to make and wondered if any parents of children with CF have any advice for us.

I have a two year old daughter with cf. My wife and I are expecting our 2nd. We did IVF. They can test the embryos before they put them back. I have also met people who have rolled the dice. It is a tough choice. You have to do what feels right to you. Good Luck

laxwho,

Thanks for the reply.  We are going to see a specialist in January and will hopefully get some more information on what our choices are.  Best of luck to you and your family!

I have a 20 year old daughter with cf. We are very interested in a support group. It seems to be tough sometimes for families to share with others when this diease effects each person so differently. But we are looking to share experiences and strength and hope. feel free to contact us at Joyfull_51012@yahoo.com

Hi Hopey's Mom,
I have a daughter that was diagnosed when she was 3, she is now 15.  She has had a bumpy road.  She has Cystic Fibrosis along with Acid reflux disorder, which complicates the CF.  She is doing really good now.  She has always had trouble gaining weight and height (failure to thrive) but in the last few years she has been putting on the weight and has been getting taller. 
 
We, my husband and I, Have to give the credit to the all natural minerals and vitamines we have started her on two years ago.  She has had less hospital stays and her lung function test have been really good the last few time we have been to the Doctors (Pulmonary).
 
My e-mail is hsbquick@yahoo.com  would love to hear from you and chat at time if possible.
 
Suzzie. :-)
