“I’d rather try and fail than fail to try.” Cystic fibrosis is a very individual disease – every patient’s CF is completely unique to them. And it is these differences and resulting complications that scare many people. I try to take the fear I feel and use it as a motivator. Fear and nervousness are never signs of failure – it is what I do with my fear that makes me successful. I will never allow fear to stop me from trying to do something – anything – positive with my life.
