I can't believe today's my 21st birthday. It seems like just yesterday I started the countdown. There's so many things in life is like to share, and I probably will eventually share on here, but I just wanted to narrow down a few important things I've learned in the past 21 years. Now to say I'm 21 is a huge blessing in itself because as you know I was told I'd never live to be 16 lite lone 21.
Today I feel blessed.
My last and final lesson(for now); don't ever take your life for granted. It's as simple as that. I'm not a perfect person and never will be, but remember to cherish every moment.
Remember, "life may be a climb, but the view sure is great."
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
