Hi everyone, I'm new and was wondering if anyone here was from the Chicago area. I have a 7 year old niece with CF. I'm new to the area and just wanted to introduce myself!

Hi Raisen,sorry to hear abot your 7yo with CF. I'm in the chicago area too. I dont actually have a diagnosis but my 6yo daughter will have her sweat test on feb9th. I'm absolutely terrified because shes showing alot of the symptoms. My husband and I are praying that its something else but something in me tells me its not. How long since your dx?

 I'm new to this site but I've been learning things about cf through everyone here. Youve all helped a lot. Thank you

Looking for hope,

                       Liz

Hi Raisen, LittleRose, and PeteRose: I'm Toni, I'm not from the Chicago area, but I'm not a real long ways away, I'm in Decatur (central IL) I'm also new here, my 13 yr old son has recently been diagnosed with Selective IgA deficiency (a Primary Immunodeficiency Disorder) and asthma. He had a sweat test in April that showed he was very close to borderline CF and had a 2nd sweat test yesterday that was a positive result and being schedule for a 3rd in 2 weeks to positively diagnose him with CF, I'm terrified and hoping to find comfort in this forum.
