4 years ago today me, my mom, my dad, and my sister started out on one of the greatest adventures ever. My Make~A~Wish trip. We were going to Bora Bora. We were all super excited, especially since we weren't entirely sure how big the island was. Come to find out it was only 5 miles big :) if you want to see the original post I'll link it right here:Make~A~Wish Trip.
Let's just say it is a memory we will all have forever and I will always be forever thankful for the Make~A~Wish foundation. There are definitely children much sicker than I am who should be doing their wishes, and I'm just thankful that I was allowed to have one of my greatest Wishes come true. It is truly a memory I will remember forever, and for that I am thankful. It really goes to show that "Dreams DO come true".
My name is Paige. I have Cystic Fibrosis. I am a fun loving, out going person. I am a Christian. My family is my priority. I was homeschooled since my freshman year of high school and graduated a year earlier at age 17-Senior 2012. I love anywhere with an ocean. My favorite color is Pink of course. I have a crazy love for food. I love to travel. I want to see the world. I enjoy spending time with my family & friends. In March 2011 I went on my Make~A~Wish trip to the most beautiful island in the world, Bora Bora. I have written a book called, Growing up with Cystic Fibrosis the first 13 years. It's about living with Cystic Fibrosis (an incurable illness). I wrote the book to help people. I have recently started to get involved with public speaking. I believe that my purpose in life is to help people, and to make a difference. I believe that God put me on this earth for a reason, and i'm not going to let him down.

"I was asked once, "If you could tell the world one thing about Cystic Fibrosis, what would it be?" And it is this. That CF hurts. It hurts physically when it feels like sandpaper is scraping your lungs with every breath. It hurts mentally to plan for and get excited about a life you may never lead. It hurts to fall in love because ...CF can be an extraordinary burden on anyone who is not meant to deal with it, most times resulting in rejection and loneliness. It hurts to watch dozens of friends lose this fight that they never deserved or asked for. But most of all, it would hurt to not have been blessed with the chance to experience life through a CFer's eyes: No love is half-given, no day is not lived to its fullest and NOTHING is taken for granted." ~posted by a fellow CFer
