May is Cystic Fibrosis month - Zack is just one of the faces

Here's the most recent picture of my grandchildren Zack and Ki'a.  Somehow I missed that, May was Cystic Fibrosis Month.  Most of you probably already know that Zack was born with CF.  We are so very lucky though.  He is now 10 years old.  An age that was rare for a child with CF to see just a few short years ago.  

We've know about his disease since he was 2 years old.  Zack is our HERO!  He has taken approximately 20 different medications a day, including breathing treatments, since he was 3 years old.  Zack hasn't let any of this stop him.  He's extremely bright and funny.  He's a wonderful student and involved in many extracurricular activities including, football, baseball, soccer, wrestling and karate.  He loves Boy Scouts, bowling, swimming and just about anything else you give him the chance to do.  It is inspirational, all he does without complaining.  I would do well, to take a lesson from his book of life.

I love this picture of them from Mothers day. 

Below I've posted a video by Frank Deford from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  I hope you'll take time to watch it and hear about the amazing strides CF makes because of others.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation video podcasts present the stories of CF patients, families and volunteers. Frank Deford, sports commenter, noted author of "Alex: The Life of a Child" and CFF Chairman Emeritus, recalls how he came to realize his daughter Alex, who died of CF at age 8, was a true hero. 

Remember to drive safe and  I hope you and your families have a blessed and fun filled Memorial Day weekend.

Hugs....Tracy :)
